Uruguay salute king Luis

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

UrUgUay ....................................... 2 SoUth Korea ............................... 1 Luis suarez’s dou­ble booked uruguay’s place in the World Cup quar­ter-fi­nals as south Korea’s ad­ven­ture came to a heart­break­ing end.

The Asian side looked to have turned the game around when Bolton mid­fielder Lee Chung-yong can­celled out suarez’s early strike with 68 min­utes gone.

But amid a win­try down­pour at the Nel­son Man­dela Bay sta­dium, the Ajax striker curled home a bril­liant win­ner 10 min­utes from time to con­firm Os­car Tabarez’s side as the first team to go thrpough to the last eight.

uruguay were the bet­ter side be­fore the break and de­served their half-time lead, but they had to sur­vive a ma­jor fight­back as Korea re­fused to give up on their dream, and uruguay keeper Fer­nando Muslera had to make a vi­tal late save from sub­sti­tute Lee Dong-gook to en­sure the tie did not go to ex­tra­time.
