Mexico 0 Uruguay 1

End-to-end football in the opening minutes, the main chance of the opening part of the first half going to Mexico, Guardado hitting the crossbar on 22’. Uruguay, however, had already had several organized forays into Mexico’s area. After playing most of the half in counter-attack, on 43’, 1-0 to Uruguay. Cavani sent a marvellous cross in from the right, Suarez was in position to head home.

Uruguay almost made it 2-0 on 54’, when Perez did well to save a powerful header from Lugano, following a free kick from the right. Mexico could have equalized through Rodriguez on 62’, heading just wide after a centre from Barrera.

On 88’, Oscar Perez did well to keep out a stinging shot from Cavani.
