Peru stunned Uruguay to advance into the Copa America semi-finals with a penalty shoot-out victory following a goalless draw in 90 minutes.

Luis Suarez was the villain for Uruguay after missing the first penalty of the shoot-out, before all Peru players netted their efforts culminating with Edison Flores for the dramatic tie-winner.

Check out the full player ratings from Salvador de Bahia.

URUGUAY

Muslera 6. Did not have a serious save to make until the shoot-out, and he could not get close to any of those.

Gonzalez 6. Linked up nicely with Nandez at times, but occasionally struggled against the threat posed by Peru down his flank.

Gimenez 8. Brilliant and indefatigable at the back, timing his challenges with ruthless precision and wholehearted commitment.

Godin 7. As ever, the skipper was always in the right place to snuff out danger, but missed a golden chance from a free-kick.

Caceres 6. Increasingly effective presence down the left as Uruguay stepped up the pressure, crossing well for Suarez’s offside goal.

Nandez 5. Provided width and penetration down the right during the early stages but faded fast and was replaced.

Valverde 7. Strong showing from the Real Madrid starlet, showing creativity and drive. Came close with a long-range free-kick.

Bentancur 6. Showed moments of class but generally operated too deep to provide much attacking support.

De Arrascaeta 6. Selected on the left of midfield and had plenty of bright moments, including a first half goal disallowed for offside.

Cavani 5. Missed an absolute sitter, had a goal disallowed and came close again a few more times but his radar was off.

Suarez 6. Came close early with a header and then a low drive, saw a goal ruled out for offside and missed his shoot-out penalty.

SUBSTITUTES

Torreira 6. Came into the centre of midfield after an hour and his calming presence gave freedom to others to get forward.

Stuani 6. Brought on for the penalty shoot-out and confidently executed his task with a firm strike into the right corner.

PERU

Gallese 7. Made a brave save at the feet of Cavani, threw himself around the goalmouth and stopped Suarez’s penalty.

Advincula 5. Posed an attacking threat with his pace but didn’t look secure defensively, with much threat down his wing.

Zambrano 8. Outstanding at the back, making a series of timely interceptions and challenges with terrific focus.

Abram 7. Showed a huge amount of heart in his tough running duel with Suarez, playing a big role in his team’s clean sheet.

Trauco 8. Perhaps the game’s most eye-catching individual, Peru’s left-back was slick on the ball and a willing worker.

Tapia 8. A tough-tackling performance in the midfield battleground, giving every effort to stop his team being overrun.

Yotun 6. Received plenty of possession in his position in front of the back four and generally used it smartly, prompting Peru’s play.

Carrillo 5. Looked to cut inside from the right to attack the penalty area, but couldn’t make much impact and was replaced.

Cueva 6. Peru’s most talented playmaker struggled to get regularly on the ball but nearly fashioned a big chance for Guerrero.

Flores 7. Made some dangerous runs down the left, showing good technical ability, and coolly converted the winning spot-kick.

Guerrero 6. Peru’s veteran skipper twice nearly broke through in the first half and ran hard throughout, belying his 35 years.

SUBSTITUTES

Gonzales 6. Replaced Carrillo on the right of attack and soon had a chance to strike, but he fired it well wide.

Ruidiaz 5. A late entrant for Cueva and helped shore up the midfield in the dying stages as Uruguay flew forward.
