World Cup 2010 Second Round: Uruguay 2-1 South Korea

Table of Contents
Luis Suárez bagged a brace to help Uruguay beat South Korea 2-1 and clinch a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

Uruguay opened the scoring after just eight minutes as Diego Forlán fizzed a low cross between a hesitant defence and goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong, who was caught in no man's land and allowed Suárez to slot home from a tight angle.

South Korea equalised in the 68th minute when Uruguay keeper Fernando Muslera flapped at a loose ball and Lee Chung-Yong nodded in from close range past a scrambling Jorge Fucile on the line.

With ten minutes remaining, Suárez scored the winner for the Uruguayans as he sidestepped two Korean defenders before curling a sublime shot past Sung-Ryong and in off the post.
