An estimated 1 million people mobbed the streets of the capital yesterday to celebrate a Mexican victory in World Cup soccer competition. Police said five people died during impromptu street parties, but other authorities later disputed the report. The outpouring that followed Mexico's 2-0 victory over Bulgaria on Sunday caused a massive eight-hour traffic jam in downtown Mexico City, turning the Paseo de la Reforma, the capital's main thoroughfare, into a giant pedestrian mall.

President Bush arrived in Uruguay today on a salute-to-democracy tour of South America, but U.S. officials looked ahead with some anxiety toward his planned stop in strife-torn Argentina. After an airport welcoming ceremony, Bush, the first American president to visit Uruguay since Lyndon Johnson in 1967, proceeded directly to talks with President Luis Alberto Lacalle. U.S. officials were not surprised that a military rebellion in Argentina fizzled, but there were lingering concerns over Bush's safety.

One could almost say the show "Las (In)Visibles: Women Artists of Uruguay" at Hicks Gallery is an attempt to embody a moment of political consciousness through a simple series of choices that 17 featured artists made in their subject matter. Indeed, turbulent pitch does set the theme for this show, and so does pungent imagery. Much of the featured work of these artists seems awkward, hesitant, yet at times powerful. This all-media show is apparently a first in a traveling format to examine the achievement and travails of present-day women artists in this nation of 3 million.

Starting its final run of World Cup warm-ups, the United States finds itself in an unusual position: The offense looks good and the defense is shaky. Tony Sanneh and DaMarcus Beasley scored first-half goals yesterday in Washington during a 2-1 exhibition soccer win over Uruguay, whose speed exposed the Americans' problems with their outside backs. Making matters worse, top defensive midfielder Chris Armas suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will miss the World Cup. No immediate replacement was picked.

Brazil kept its string of qualifying for every World Cup, getting two second-half goals from Romario yesterday to beat Uruguay, 2-0, before a crowd of 103,000 in Rio de Janeiro and clinch its 15th appearance in soccer's world championship. Romario, recalled last weekend from Barcelona in the Spanish League, gave Brazil the lead in the 72d minute on a header. He scored again 10 minutes later, dribbling past two defenders and tapping the ball over the goalkeeper's head. Brazil (5-1-2)

If this tiny country sandwiched between Argentina and Brazil is any example, South America is drifting leftward again, away from the United States and its gospel of free-market capitalism. Uruguay, one of the region's most stable democracies and oldest U.S. allies, may soon elect its first leftist government. Leftists already rule four countries in the southern cone of the continent. Ecuador and Bolivia are ripe for revolution, with long-standing conflicts between white-minority governments and angry Indian and mixed-race majorities that want self-rule.

Clutching his head in his hands, Edinson Cavani doubled over in front of the goal in the 89th minute. The Uruguay forward had just watched his shot veer right of the goal and with it likely La Celeste's hope of advancing out of the Copa America Centenario's group stage. With star striker Luis Suarez sidelined by an injury, Uruguay looked lost in its 1-0 defeat, unable to capitalize on opportunities to get on the scoreboard and incapable of overpowering a Venezuela team that entered the tournament as a considerable underdog.

Uruguay head coach Oscar Tabarez spoke bluntly Wednesday about the health of star striker Luis Suarez, who has been recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered last month. "He still hasn't finished his rehab," Tabarez said through an interpreter, "and until that happens he won't be used on the team. " Tabarez said he wanted the Barcelona standout to be healthy for World Cup qualifiers. Venezuela coach Rafael Dudamel said he had anticipated Suarez would play, but either way, the game would be a challenge.

Luis Suarez joked around with teammates at the beginning of Uruguay's training session late Tuesday afternoon at the University of Pennsylvania and moved freely and fluidly. While the 15 minutes open to reporters before the true training began wasn't much, Uruguay fans looked for any positive news about the Barcelona star. Seeing Suarez move well, albeit in short bursts, could be the first step in the good news department. The speculation will continue as to whether Suarez will play in Uruguay's second Copa America Group C game, 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at Lincoln Financial Field against Venezuela.

In its biggest match before the World Cup, the U.S. men's national rugby team battled Harlequins early but didn't have enough late, falling, 24-19, in front of 6,364 fans at PPL Park. The Eagles, who must whittle their roster this week in preparation for the World Cup, were tied, 14-14, in the second half. But Harlequins, a top-tier English club still in its preseason, got a try from Luke Wallace with a little more than 10 minutes to play that put Harlequins ahead for good. On a positive note, the United States led, 11-0, when the top players were in the game.

JOHN'S, Antigua - In his first game back with the U.S. national team, Eddie Johnson scored twice on Friday night, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, to lift the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a nervous, 2-1 road win in the rain over Antigua and Barbuda. Johnson connected on headers in the 20th minute and then in the dying moments in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was added to the squad by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, ostensibly replacing the disappointing Jozy Altidore.
