Spain vs. Uruguay: Confederations Cup Live Score, Highlights, Recap
Spain 2-1 Uruguay
Goals: Pedro 20', Roberto Soldado 32'; Luis Suarez 88'
FULL TIME: Spain 2-1 Uruguay—The scoreline fails to show Spain's dominance on the night, with the world champions sloppy in the latter stages. Uruguay were poor for much of the encounter, but rallied after the introduction of Diego Forlan late on. A wonderful free-kick from Liverpool's Luis Suarez got them on the scoresheet late on, following early strikes from Pedro and Soldado for Spain.
Third time this tournament the referee has bottled sending someone off for denying a clear goal scoring opp— Michael Cox (@Zonal_Marking) June 16, 2013
90+2' BAD CALL! Soldado is clear in the middle and is clipped by Gonzalez. The referee, though, waves play away. That was a clear foul and, thus, a red card.
90+1' Suarez throws himself to the floor looking for another free-kick, but appeals are waved away by the referee.
Four minutes added time...
90' At the other end, Sergio Ramos lines up a free-kick from 30 yards but skies the ball into the stands.
Luis Suarez is now the equal all-time goal-scorer for Uruguay along with Diego Forlan.— Football Uruguay (@footballuruguay) June 16, 2013
88' GOAL Spain 2-1 Uruguay (Luis Suarez)—Lovely curled free-kick flies in at the near post after a clumsy foul from Sergio Ramos. Wonderful strike.
86' Another worry for Spain as a Javi Martinez stumble sees him holding his wrist. He soon gets up and gets on his way.
84' It goes on and on from Spain, with pass after pass draining the life from the game. Uruguay look very tired now.
82' Uruguay look dejected. The 2-0 scoreline does not show the gulf in class between the two sides.
81' SUBSTITUTION Juan Mata replaces Pedro for Spain.
80' A worry for Spain as Pedro goes down holding the back of his leg. However, it appears just to be cramp.
78' Spain now taking it much easier than they have been, as they almost adopt a casual approach in attack. Who can blame them.
77' SUBSTITUTION—Xavi is replaced by Javier Martinez for Spain.
75' Been a better few minutes for Uruguay, and they have another shot as a reward. Rodriguez pokes wide from 25 yards.
73' Lucky boy... Sergio Ramos jumps in with both feet on Nicolas Lodeiro, and Uruguay are furious. The referee, though, opts not to even book the Spaniard. He took the ball, but it was an ugly tackle.
71' YELLOW CARD (Arbeloa)—The Real Madrid full back is booked for a nasty tackle on the ankle of Lodeiro.
Cesc Fàbregas has moved into the top-10 all-time highest-capped Spanish players tonight (82, overtakes José Antonio Camacho).— James Busher (@JamesBusher) June 16, 2013
69' SUBSTITUTION—Diego Forlan replaces Diego Perez as Uruguay throw on attacking talent.
