Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez Score as Uruguay Cruises Past 10-Man Ecuador

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil — Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez led Uruguay to a comfortable 4-0 win over 10-man Ecuador in the Copa America on Sunday.

Uruguay also scored with Nicolas Lodeiro and an own-goal by Ecuadorean defender Arturo Mina in the Group C match at the Mineirao Stadium.

Uruguay played with an extra man from the 24th minute after Ecuador's Jose Quintero was red-carded for elbowing Lodeiro during a ball dispute. Quintero was initially given a yellow card, but video review determined he deserved a red.

Uruguay was already in control when Quintero was sent off at the Mineirao, which held a small crowd of about 13,000 people.
