Uruguay 2-1 South Korea

The Line-Ups:

Uruguay: 1-Fernando Muslera; 2-Diego Lugano, 3-Diego Godin, 4-Jorge Fucile, 16-Maximiliano Pereira, 15-Diego Perez, 17-Egidio Arevalo, 7-Edinson Cavani, 11-Alvaro Pereira, 9-Luis Suarez, 10-Diego Forlan.

South Korea: 18-Jung Sung-ryong; 22-Cha Du-ri, 12-Lee Young-pyo, 4-Cho Yong-hyung, 14-Lee Jung-soo, 8-Kim Jung-woo, 16-Ki Sung-yong, 13-Kim Jae-sung, 7-Park Ji-sung, 17-Lee Chung-yong, 10-Park Chu-young.

Here we go! Second round underway with Uruguay and South Korea. What a start to a last 16th match!!! Forlan picks the ball from the left to cross to the far post where keeper Jung Sung-ryong makes a mess of it allowing the ball to go through to Suarez that completely alone just taps in from close range making Uruguay 1-0 up against South Korea. It is the second goal from Suarez in four matches and he is living up to expectations under what we did predict prior to the World Cup.

After a cheerful first half dominated by the South Americans it is the South Koreans that that now pressure high and dominate the game and they even had two close chances to level the match but were unable to convert them into goals.

And South Korea does it!!! After dominating the whole second half we all saw it coming. Free Kick on the left and Lee Chung-yong from Bolton heads it to the back of the net leveling the match and what a deserved goal. Where is the magic of Suarez and Forlan duo? Are they to prevail or will Park Ji-Sung make it happen?

And Uruguay scores!!! The usual suspect strikes a swinging shot and doubles his personal account in terms of goals. Suarez comes from inside to outside the box and curls it in. 2-1 after 80 minutes and Uruguay will have to wait for the match between USA vs. Ghana to see who will they face in the Quarter-Finals of this World Cup.

The flawless due that had 77 goals combined this season do it again!! Suarez and Forlan help Uruguay to go through to the next phase. It is a pity to see South Korea going out of this competition after their fantastic performances, but that is World Cup. Mess with the best “die” like the rest.
