Copa América: Uruguay players, including Darwin Núñez, enter stands to fight fans after loss to Colombia

Uruguay's time in the 2024 Copa América ended in ugly fashion, and not just because they lost to a shorthanded Colombia squad in the semifinals.

The postgame scene between Uruguay and Colombia descended into chaos in Charlotte when a group of La Celeste players entered the stands at Bank of America Stadium to brawl with a group of Colombian fans. Comparisons to the NBA's infamous "Malice at the Palace" were quick.

The charge appeared to be spearheaded by Liverpool striker Darwin Núñez, who could be seen throwing punches in the middle of the fracas.

More angles:

The violence was preceded by a frustrating loss for Uruguay, which was playing for a chance to face Argentina in the final for its first Copa América title since 2011.
