Italy vs. Uruguay: Highlights from Group D Match

Diego Godin put Uruguay through to the knockout stages with a late goal off of a corner kick to help Uruguay to a 1-0 victory. 

Italy were reduced to 10 men before Uruguay finally made their breakthrough. 

 

 

The goal was overshadowed by (another) Luis Suarez biting incident

 

 

In a fairly uneventful first half, Mario Balotelli learned that he would miss a potential match in the knockout stages through suspension after a reckless challenge which ended with his knee in Alvaro Pereira's head. 

In the second half, Claudio Marchisio was sent off for a studs-up challenge, leaving Italy to try and hold on against Uruguay with 10 men. 

 

Gianluigi Buffon kept Italy's hopes alive with a fantastic save against Suarez.
