Defending champion Brazil was spared being eliminated by Uruguay in the semifinals of the Copa America when Pablo Garcia missed his penalty kick with a chance to put the Celeste into the final.

Instead, Brazil prevailed, 5-4, in the shootout after their game ended, 2-2.

Brazil twice blew leads it had taken in the first half, on goals by Maicon and Julio Baptista. Diego Forlan and substitute Sebastian Abreu pulled Uruguay level.

"To be a winning team, you have to know how to suffer," said Brazil coach Dunga. "In the most difficult moment, you have to have posture, courage and fight until the end."
