Diego Forlan scored twice after Luis Suarez's opening goal as Uruguay beat Paraguay 3-0 to win the Copa America on Sunday and become South American champions for a record 15th time.

Luis Suarez put Uruguay ahead in the 12th minute of the final. His low, left-footed shot from the right beat the diving goalkeeper and went in off the far post.

Diego Forlan, the 2010 World Cup's best player, made it 2-0 three minutes before halftime when he ran onto a ball from a midfielder player and shot from just inside the penalty box.

In the last minute, Diego Forlan made sure of the title with his second goal at the end of a fine counter-attacking move, shooting the ball past the goalkeeper and in off the post.

This team were very united, they showed that what they did at the World Cup was no good luck and we showed we are the best in America, Luis Suarez told reporters.

Suarez scored four goals in the tournament and was voted the best player of the tournament

Peru beat Venezuela 4-1 in the match for the third place on Saturday.
