Uruguay beat South Korea at World Cup

8:17 am on 27 June 2010

David Suarez scored a goal in each half to give Uruguay a 2-1 win over South Korea in Port Elizabeth and take them to the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 40 years.

Suarez netted in the eighth and 80th minute of a match that looked to be headed for extra-time to crush the Koreans' dreams of reaching the last eight for the first time on foreign soil.

Korea scored in the 68th minute through Lee Chung-yong.

Uruguay will play either the United States or Ghana in the quarter-finals.
