FULL TIME: Uruguay take advantage of their numerical supremacy and advance into the Round of 16 as the second-place team from Group D after a tense affair in Natal that ended 1-0 in the South Americans favour. Captain Diego Godin's goal proved to be enough as La Celeste move on and send Italy home. Costa Rica's 0-0 draw against England was enough for Los Ticos to take the top spot in the group.
It's all hands on deck in the Uruguayan defence as they look to hold onto their slim lead that would see them through the Round of 16.
