MONTEVIDEO, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Uruguay's Olympic soccer team Wednesday defeated Chile 6-4 in its penultimate friendly match before London 2012.

Luis Suarez, Uruguayan forward and one of the three support players older than 23 years old, scored three goals and was the star of the match played at Campus de Maldonado stadium, located at 140 kilometers east of Montevideo, capital city of Uruguay.

Uruguay's team, coached by Oscar Tabarez who led the team to finish fourth in the 2010 World Cup and win Copa America 2011, showed an implacable offensive level, but his defense had serious lacks.

Because of some defensive mistakes of Uruguay, Chile was effective and took advantage by scoring two goals by Angelo Henriquez at the second minute, and Carlos Munoz at the 11th minute.

Afterwards, the Uruguayan offensive power appeared with two goals from Suarez (minutes 31 and 35) and one from Edinson Cavani (minute 39), a penalty due to a fault against Suarez.

In the second half, Uruguay's Suarez scores its third goal, the fourth one for his team (minute 47) and Cavani as well scores his second goal (minute 71).

In the last stretch, Chilean Sebastian Ubilla scored (minute 80) followed by another Uruguayan goal scored by Abel Hernandez (minute 84).

Uruguay's Ubilla scored once again in the stoppage time (minute 90) to end the game 6-4.

The Uruguayan national team will say good-bye next Sunday with a match against Panama at Centenario stadium in Montevideo.

Uruguay is part of Group A together with Britain, Senegal and the United Arab Emirates. The South American team will open against United Arab Emirates on July 26 in London 2012.

After 84 years, Uruguay will play again Olympic soccer, a sport in which it won gold medal in 1924 and 1928, the only two won by Uruguayan sports in the Olympic Games.
