Quick hit: Stadium plays wrong anthem for Uruguay ahead of match with Mexico


Maybe University of Phoenix Stadium had its Latin American anthems playlist on shuffle.

As Uruguay took the field for its Copa America matchup with Mexico on Sunday, it was introduced with the Chilean national anthem.

Some Uruguayan players looked unfazed. Others looked slightly angry. One sang — and it's unclear which anthem he was reciting.

Uruguay did not win. Nor did Chile. Mexico took the game, 3-1.
