Chile edged Peru 1-0 tonight to win Group C at the Copa America.

The sides went into their section finale level on four points, enough to see both into the quarter-finals.

But it was a largely turgid affair which Peruvian defender Aldo Corzo settled by deflecting into his own net in injury-time.

The win put the Chileans on seven points from their three games, with the Peruvians on four.

Uruguay could now take second spot - and book a quarter-final meeting with Argentina - if they win the late match against Mexico, who are already on their way home after losing their opening two games.
