MONTEVIDEO - Thousands of Uruguayan soccer fans, many with faces painted sky blue, flooded into the streets of the capital on Sunday to celebrate their team's record-breaking Copa America triumph.

Striker Diego Forlan scored twice after Luis Suarez's opening goal as "La Celeste" beat Paraguay 3-0 to be crowned South American champions for a record 15th time.

Some 3,000 fans watched the final on a giant television screen set up in Montevideo's central avenue despite the chilly winter weather and the final whistle unleashed a cacophony of car horns and singing.

"I'm so excited because we won by playing great football ... with skillful play, with teamwork," fan Neumar Noble said. "It's not just about celebrating the win, it's also about celebrating the unity of this team."
