Uruguay marked a way better performance than they did against France in the first match. Let's hope they keep this up and surprise us in the upcoming matches

Uruguay was not that good. But South Africa was playing without strategy and giving the ball back to Uruguay every time Uruguay made a mistake. Mexico or any other good team will beat Uruguay 2:0. Too bad for South Africa though, going to support Brazil now!!!

The 3-0 doesn’t reflect the game. But Uruguay are a good team with good players, like Forlan. Their experience told at important moments. Our hopes are not over. We need to beat France, but we will have to be more aggressive.
