Uruguay win but face World Cup playoff with Jordan

Brasilia: Chile and Ecuador claimed the final two South American berths at next year`s World Cup finals in Brazil on Tuesday as Uruguay missed out, despite beating already qualified Argentina.

Uruguay, two-times world champions, beat group winners Argentina 3-2 in Montevideo. But Chile`s 2-1 success over Ecuador gave them third place and the Ecuadorans clung on for fourth.

Already qualified Colombia`s 2-1 win in Paraguay saw them finish second after the final slate of matches.

Uruguay still have a chance of reaching next year`s finals. They will meet Asia`s Jordan in a playoff next month for a World Cup spot.
