CHICLAYO, Peru (AP) -- Mexico surprised Argentina
1-0 in the Copa America on Saturday night, scoring on Ramon Morales' bending
free kick in the ninth minute.
Morales sent his shot into the upper right corner and goalkeeper Roberto
Abbondanzieri never had a chance as the Mexicans beat Argentina for the first
time in 14 years.
In Saturday's other game, Uruguay beat Ecuador 2-1.
Referee Marcio Rezende called the free kick after Argentina's Luis Gonzalez
brought down striker Jesus Arellano with a slide tackle from behind.
Argentina dominated much of the game, replicating the attacking style that
lifted it to its opening six-goal victory over Ecuador, but couldn't get through
Mexico and Uruguay share first place in Group B with four points. Argentina
trails with three, followed by Ecuador with none.
Manchester United striker Diego Forlan and Carlos Bueno scored for Uruguay.
