Fab­u­lous For­lan at the dou­ble

YES­TER­DAY’S AC­TION

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

SOUTH AFRICA ................... 0 URUGUAY............................ 3 WHEN Diego For­lan was at Manch­ester United he was largely con­sid­ered to be a flop, but he has de­vel­oped into a highly-re­spected marks­man since those days and his dou­ble dented the hopes of hosts South Africa last night.

For­lan opened the scor­ing with a long-range ef­fort on 24 min­utes and then scored from the spot 10 min­utes from time af­ter South African keeper Itume­leng Khune had been sent off for bring­ing down Luis Suarez.

For­lan went close to com­plet­ing his hat-trick in the clos­ing stages but Al­varo Pereira made it 3-0 in the fifth minute of added on time
