Uruguay Moves On
South Korea fought hard, but in the cold rain Uruguay came away with a 2-1 victory. Luis Suarez scored both goals, with Lee Chung-Yong scoring for the South Koreans.
Suarez's first goal came in just the 8th minute, with a pass that went clean across the face of the goal, drawing keeper Jung Sung-Ryong, enabling Suarez to put in the cross easily off his left foot. The match went without too much action for the rest of the half.
In the 68th minute, Chung-Yong scored off a ball played into the box that he headed on for the equalizing goal. Uruguay wasn't about to go away. On the attack, their forwards did some solid passing, until Suarez inched closer to the left corner of the 18 yard box, and ripped a bending shot off the far post and in to unknot the contest. Beautiful goal.
So Uruguay will move on to play the winner of the USA-Ghana match coming up in just about 2 hours.
