The loudspeakers at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona played the wrong national anthem for one of the teams Sunday night. They played the Chilean national anthem for the team from Uruguay. Some players called it disrespectful.

Copa America returns to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara Monday night. Argentina takes on Chile at 7 p.m.
