Suarez Double Sinks South Korea

Second Round Match

Uruguay vs South Korea
in Port Elizabeth

The South Koreans are a busy, fit side. Uruguay looked to calm them down and hope to catch them out at the back.

As was expected, South Korea charged forward at the start and exposed themselves at the back; Diego Forlan crossing low for Luis Suarez at the far post to knock the ball in, after Jung Sung-Ryong tried to dive to cut out the cross and didn't reach it.

Once in the lead, Uruguay were content to sit deeper and let South Korea come at them.

South Korea went in at the break thinking what might have been had Park Chu-Young's free-kick not hit the post in the fourth minute.

Park Chu-Young's free-kick just before half-time hit the wall, and Cha Du-Ri fired the rebound high.

Half-time: 1:0

South Korea came out in the second-half with Lee Young-Pyo getting more forward on the left; his low cross turned out for a corner.

South Korea continued to put the pressure on Uruguay, Park Ji-Sung's header quite comfortable for Fernando Muslera though.

Eventually the continued pressure paid off as a free-kick from the left was headed up in the air. As Muslera left his line, Lee Chung-Yong beat Edinson Cavani to the header and equalised for South Korea.

Lee Chung-Yong almost added a second a couple of minutes later.

Ten minutes from time, an Uruguayan corner was poorly dealt with by the South Korean defenders; giving Luis Suarez the chance to curl the ball in off the post from the outside left side of the penalty area.
