Before Peru vs Uruguay Kickoff: Uruguay is not Superior Team said Tabarez

Buenos Aires - Oscar Tabarez know if favorite status over his team would be burdensome. Then against Peru in semi-final, Tabarez ask his players to stay alert and focus to win final ticket.

With Argentina and Brazil have ousted from the tournament, Uruguay is now automatically be strongest candidate to win Copa America 2011. Three other team, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela may be simply considered as a 'nuisance'.

But that does not mean a nuisance can not giving a shock as Paraguay, Venezuela and Uruguay itself had shown in quarterfinal matches.

La Celeste as we know can step to semi-final after beating the host and chmapion favourite, Argentina, on penalties, while Peru, which had no great tradition in this tournament, defeated the dark horse team, Chile.

Reflected from factors above, Tabarez assessed that the quality of the four teams in semifinals is equally strong and the forth have a same chance to grab Copa America trophy.

So he asks Luis Suarez et al to play without load against Peru on Wednesday (20 / 7). If burdened with the favorites status, then the danger wil await the two-times world champion team.

"I do not want to talk about favorite. We was always unlucky about it," said Tabarez as reported by Reuters.

"Four teams in semifinals have same chance to win the title. Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela will not say: 'This is it, we already drive so far away,'" he continued.

"In this tournament, (Peru) is one of four best teams in South America. Their Evolution has proven it. We will try to guard them closely, do not appearing nervous as we did in first game. We was not believe in ourselves we are superior , "he said.

Peru is actually not an easy opponent for Uruguay, at least in their last four battles in Copa America, where La Rojiblanca was able to win twice and drew twice.

"If we compare ourselves with Argentina, they always win from us at any time and that's not it. We have to think about what we can do and not about our shortcomings," Tabarez conclude.
