Diego Forlan scored a hat-trick to help his country Uruguay rout Peru 6-0 in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday at Centenario stadium in Montevideo.

Carlos Bueno scored two goals and substitute Sebastian Abreu scored the final goal in the final minute.

Peru striker Paolo Guerrero was sent off after 39 minutes for furiously protesting the penalty which led to the second goal.

Uruguay, who had drawn their last two home games, moved on to 8 points from six games while Peru, beaten 5-1 in Ecuador in November, remained on 3 points.

Peru also lost 4-0 to Mexico in a friendly 10 days ago and the latest setback is widely expected to cost coach Jose del Solar his job.
