Striker Humberto Suazo is certain to miss the first of Chile's two warmup matches for the Copa America because of a shoulder injury.

Chile doctor Roberto Yanez says Suazo, who plays for Mexican club Monterrey, will miss the June 19 friendly against Estonia in the Chilean capital Santiago. Yanez says he could be available for the June 23 match against Paraguay in Asuncion.

The Copa America in Argentina opens on July 1. Chile's first Group C match is on July 4 against Mexico. Peru and Uruguay are also in Group C.
