Martinez made up for the miss when he converted a low cross from De Paul 17 minutes into the second half. Uruguay, who ended the day fourth in the 10-team table, were unbeaten in eight matches coming into Sunday’s match. Edinson Cavani came on in the second half for Uruguay but it was Argentina who had the better chances in an entertaining game that featured only 15 fouls and no cautions. Messi came close to getting his second and substitute Angel Di Maria could have made it four on two occasions only to twice see Muslera parry his goalbound shots. Elsewhere, Chile won for the first time in eight qualifying matches to keep their slender hopes of qualifying for Qatar alive.
