South Africa 0 Uruguay 3

Diego Forlan, national hero of Uruguay tonight, was the first player in this World Cup to score a brace of goals in Uruguay’s 3-0 destruction of host team South Africa at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria, where the team had been unbeaten before tonight.

Uruguay started to threaten on 23’, when Suarez saw Khune save his searing shot and on 24’, Forlan pounced from 30 metres, sending his shot screeching into the top of the net with Khune stranded. A world-class strike and candidate for goal of the competition.

Uruguay had several half-chances before Forlan scored his brace. On 76’ Khune brought down Suarez (a polemical decision, but FIFA does not allow hi-tech to interfere with “the spirit of the game”) and was sent off. Forlan belted the penalty past the second goalkeeper, Moneeb Josephs.

Alvaro Pereira added Uruguay’s third in injury time.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
