Description:

1. In the 23rd minute, Luis Suarez teased his way past Bongani Khumalo before stinging the palms of Itumelenge Khune.

2. Diego Forlan scored the 1st GOAL of the match for Uruguay at 24 min.

3. Uruguay was playing well, while the host South Africa was not playing too much great to knock the Urugay out.

4. The second half started as the first had finished, with Oscar Tabarez’s side threatening to add to their lead.

5. Cavani was first denied an opportunity to strike at goal thanks to some smart defending by Masilela, Diego Lugano might have been wheeling off in celebration had he made any kind of decent connection with Forlan’s inviting corner-kick, and, in the 67th minute, the lively Pareira was guilty of scuffing a gilt-edged chance wide.

6. Bafana Bafana were in search of leveling the score but the defenders of Uruguay were not letting them to do so.

7. The host nation’s hopes of making it to the last 16 for the first time in their FIFA World Cup history received a hammer blow in the 76th minute when Khune was adjudged to have brought down Suarez, prompting referee Massimo Busacca to point to the spot, before flashing a red card at the South African keeper.

8. Once again, Diego Forlan succeeded in scoring the 2nd GOAL of the match for Uruguay on Penalty Kick at 80 min.

9. Mphela and Siphiwe Tshabalala both had chances to reduce the deficit in the closing stages but, in the end, there was little the hosts could do to deny Uruguay a deserved and vital three points.

10. Alvaro Pereira scored the third GOAL at the South African post & for his country Uruguay in ‘injury time’ (90+5 min.).

Man Of The Match:

Diego Forlan, attacker of Uruguay was awarded the Man Of The Match award.

Diego Benaglio [Switzerland] 90+1 min. – Yellow Card

Hakan Yakin [Switzerland] 90+4 – Yellow Card

Description:

1. After coming forward for a free-kick, centre-back Gerard Pique remained in an advanced position and collected a brilliant through-ball from the lively Andres Iniesta, back from injury in time to make the starting XI.

2. The Swiss had their only notable attempt of the first period just seconds later, with Reto Ziegler’s free-kick from 20 yards hardly troubling Iker Casillas, the Real Madrid man diving to his left to keep out the tame strike.

3. Both teams played well in first half to score a GOAL.

4. A chance of scoring a goal with Spain Spain dictating the patterns but stuttering in front of goal.

5. Gelson Fernandes scored first GOAL for Switzerland at 52 min.

6. Liverpool man Torres began to torment the defence with his running and pace, leading directly to a vicious strike from Xabi Alonso in the 71st minute which rattled the crossbar and left it shaking.

7. Swiss were dangerous on the break, however, and Derdiyok hit the post with a quarter-hour to go after the Spaniards committed too many men forward.

8. Seconds later Spain lost Iniesta, who limped off after a rough challenge; he may have aggravated the muscle injury that made him a doubt before the game.
Man Of The Match:

2. Chile kept coming forward, with Sanchez driving in a shot that struck the hand of Maynor Figueroa.

3. Hondrous tried their best to level the score but due to lack of confidence, they didn’t get pass through.
