(Football) Uruguay settle for draw
(03-06 11:43)

Midfielder Alvaro Pereira scored a second-half equalizer to help Uruguay draw 1-1 with Austria in the South Americans' World Cup warmup game yesterday in Klagenfurt, Austria.
Two minutes after replacing Cristian Rodriguez, Pereira tapped in after Austria goalkeeper Robert Almer failed to gather the ball in the 66th.
Austria captain Marc Janko had given the home side the lead after 14 minutes, beating goalkeeper Fernando Muslera with a low shot from just inside the area.
Austria dominated the opening 20 minutes before Uruguay took control of an entertaining first half. The match was less fluent in the second half, with Austria creating few opportunities and Uruguay becoming sloppy with its passing.
