Brazil continued their dominant start to the Copa América Femenina with a 3-0 triumph over Uruguay, while Argentina bounced back from an opening 4-0 defeat by beating Peru via the same scoreline.

Argentina - third-place finishers when the tournament was last played in 2018 - made a humbling start to this year's edition in Colombia, losing 4-0 versus the Brazilians in their opener.

Argentina responded in fine fashion versus Peru, however, with Yamila Rodríguez opening the scoring.

Florencia Bonsegundo, Eliana Stábile and substitute Érica Lonigro added second-half goals to complete the rout at Armenia's Estadio Centenario.

Brazil beat Uruguay at the same venue, with Adriana netting a brace to take her tally for the tournament to four goals.

The first was a tap-in and the second a classy conclusion to a one-on-one, with Adriana rounding the goalkeeper before rolling the ball home.

Debinha scored the game's other goal.

Defending champions Brazil sit top of Group B with six points from two games.

Venezuela, who did not play in this round of games, are second on three points so would also advance to the semi-finals as things stand.

Argentina are level on points with Venezuela but have a neutral goal difference, versus Venezuela's +1.

The next Group A matches are scheduled for Thursday (July 14) and Group B returns on Friday (July 15). 

This tournament offers qualification for both the 2023 FIFA World Cup and Paris 2024 Olympics.
