Mexico vs Uruguay in Rustenburg.

A draw between Mexico and Uruguay would be enough for both Latin Americans to advance.

Without so much as a booking in the first-half of this match, neutrals might have been concerned that there wasn't really a game being played in Rustenburg.

Those fears were set aside when Luis Suarez headed Uruguay in front, just before half-time.

Half-time: 0:1

Mexico made a change at the start of the second-half; Pablo Barrera coming on for Andres Guardado, who actually hit the underside of the crossbar in the first-half.

Mexico made a couple more substitutions to try and earn the point that would  them of qualification.

In the end, South Africa couldn't score enough against France and Mexico edged out the hosts on goal difference.
