MOST COMMENTED

Longtime MLS star Jaime Moreno celebrated his return to the Copa America after an eight-year absence by scoring by help Bolivia tie host Venezuela, 2-2, Tuesday on the opening day of the 12-team South American championship.

Moreno, who previously played for Bolivia in the 1991, 1993, 1997 and 1999 Copa Americans, evened the score at 1-1 late in the first half when he dribbled through a maze of Venezuelan defenders and his shot deflected off a Venezuelan defender and rolled into the goal.

Venezuela went ahead a second time on a goal by Ricardo David Paez, son of Coach Richard Paez, but Bolivia rallied for the equalizer late in the game when Juan Carlos Arce scored with a shot to the near post.

In the other Group A opener, Peru shocked Uruguay, 3-0, on goals by Miguel Villalta, Juan Marino and Paolo Guerrero.
