Both teams were looking to bounce back from opening game defeats and made changes to their starting line-ups in a bid to take the vital three points.

The South Americans broke the deadlock after just three minutes through a stroke of genius from De Arrascaeta.

The 19-year-old midfielder was hauled down by Tim Payne 20-yards from goal.

De Arrascaeta dusted himself down and curled an unstoppable free-kick into the left top corner, leaving New Zealand goalkeeper Scott Basalaj no chance.

Nicolás López then made sure of the points with a close-range finish in the 75th minute.
