PEEEEEEEEP PEEEEEP PEEEP. Game over. Uruguay leave winners but South Korea played admirably. They had their chances but Uruguay’s two real attempts at goal were all they needed to progress to the quarters. Ghana or USA await.
3 minutes of stoppage time.
87:00 – Korea have a great chance through Lee Dong-Gook and his scuffled shot slips through Muslera’s legs and trickles toward goal, but in the end Lugano has all the time to clear.
86:00 – Uruguay resorting back to defensive mindset. Amazing how a team can switch back and forth so effortlessly as a unit.
80:00 – GOOOOOOOOOAAAAL. Suarez with an excellent shot from the edge of the penalty box as he curls it over the defenders and off the post and in. South Korea 1 – Uruguay 2
75:00 – Well to answer my question from a couple of minutes ago…quite easily as Uruguay shift into attacking mode with some slick one time passing and intelligent runs. Unfortunately for the South Americans, their finishing touch is left wanting.
74:00 – Suarez misses an easy header as he is found all by himself at the back post but his header is very poor.
71:00 – South Korea really going for it as they attack down the right and waltz into the penalty area, but shot is softish and straight at the keeper.
70:00 – Question is how quickly can Uruguay switch from their complete defensive mentality to one that requires some real attacking intent.
68:00 – GOOOOOOOAAAAAAL. Lee Chung Yung gets a headed goal. From a free kick, the ball ricochets up in th eair and falls to the Korea striker who nods it in the goal. South Korea 1 – Uruguay 1.
