3 - 3

FT

Uruguay

  • Richard Morales 46'
  • Diego Forlán 69'
  • Alvaro Recoba 88' PEN
  • 94'

    And Uruguay go home. The arrival of Morales and Forlan changed the game and led to that astonishing second half. Both scored - Forlan perhaps the goal of the tournament with remarkable technique and power - but Morales missed that glorious chance to win the game and take Uruguay through.

  • 94'

    And Senegal in their first ever World Cup are through to the last 16 - just. They were terrific on the counter attack in the first half, but it was like the Alamo in their box towards the end, and the Senegalese battle on

  • 94'

    ... but it can't be taken because the final whistle blocks. Senegal 3 Uruguay 3 - absolutely incredible drama in surely the best game of the World Cup so far

  • 93'

    Recoba goes down - no free kick and Fadiga finds Ndiaye, who finds Baye, whose cross earns a corner..

  • 92'

    And a terrific claim from Sylva - he's been superb coming off his line all game

  • 92'

    How did he miss? He headed wide. And if Uruguay go out, they will look back at that header and wonder

  • 91'

    It's Garcia, and he hits the wall, it comes out to Rodriguez. That's a brilliant strike from 35 yards and a superb block from Diatta three yards out but it comes to Morales from three yards....

  • 90'

    Recoba's there, Silva's there, Forlan's there, Garcia's there...

  • 90'

    Free kick on the edge of the Senegal box....

  • 89'

    Sylva charges out to claim from Silva - it's absolutely frantic now

  • 89'

    Two questionable penalties now, but they've evened up in this incredible game

  • 88'

    GOAL! He drills it into the bottom corner and it's 3-3. What a comeback but is there a winner?

  • 88'

    It's Alvaro Recoba...

  • 87'

    Morales breaks into the box, he goes down under Beye's challenge after Silva's flick. Yellow card and a penalty!

  • 87'

    Fadiga is booked for time-wasting - and he'll miss Senegal's next game. Good news for England, Argentina or Sweden

  • 86'

    Time's running out for Uruguary, but they're giving it a real go here and Senegal are fighting for their lives

  • 85'

    Twive Senegal win really important headers to clear. Eventually Forlan has a go from 30 yards - well wide

  • 84'

    ... and Diouf's offside at the other end. Uruguary release Regueiro and Beye concedes a corner with a very fine tackle

  • 84'

    Rodriguez looks for Morales, but an offside flag is up

  • 83'

    Recoba curls it in, Sylva's punch is unconvincing, but there's a defender on hand to wallop it away

  • 82'

    ... but it's a terrible free kick and Uruguay break. Silva wins the corner

  • 82'

    Diouf breaks past Montero, who cynically tugs him back. Yellow card - he probably wasn't the last man, but no one would have caught Diouf

  • 81'

    Forlan spreads the play really well to Regueiro, who wins a throw.

  • 80'

    Sylva charges out of his box as Morales breaks the offside trap again

  • 79'

    Reocba tries to pick out Morales, Diop's tackle denies him and a fine tackle by Beye denies them a corner

  • 78'

    And at 3-3, Uruguay would surely have been favourites

  • 77'

    Forlan's onside. Lembo picks him out and he's past the defence... only to pull his shot across the goal. A great chance

  • 76'

    Diouf has a great chance to seal it but Carini produces a superb block in a one-on-one. the move stemmed from a great claim from Sylva and a long kick which found the unmarked forward

  • 76'

    And Feye replaces Ndour in Senegal's final change

  • 75'

    Reguerio charges forward - 40 yards alnong the touchline. Beye's crude block ends his run.

  • 75'

    .... but Diouf can relieve that with a counter attack which ends with a poor cross from Diatta

  • 74'

    Senegal are warming up a third substitute - they;re under real pressure

  • 72'

    Brilliantly worked Uruguay move ends with Daf blocking Recoba's shot. They went 80 yards there with neat passing and movement. Forlan was involved again before Recoba's attempt to finish

  • 71'

    And Recoba has another long-range free kick - from 35 yards he curls it and only just beats the post. Uruguay are really back in this one...

  • 69'

    A booking for Pape Bouba Diop - it's 4-4 on the yellow cards now

  • 69'

    They needed a goal and they got it. A truly exceptional strike - Uruguay have now scored two of the best goals of the World Cup

  • 69'

    Recoba curls in a free kick. It's headed out to the edge of the box and Forlan chests it down and hits it on the volley... GOAL!

  • 68'

    Twenty minutes since the goal and Uruguay really need another soon as Sylva again comes out of his box quickly. this time, he beats Morales to the ball

  • 67'

    Another Senegal substitution - Moussa NDiaye to replace the more attacking Camara

  • 66'

    Senegal come forward with Camara. he plays a neat one-two with Bouba Diop but his touch takes him too wide and his cross is easy for Carini

  • 65'

    Reguiero beats his man and crosses - but it's too deep for Silva to get a shot in. He puts in back in and it's getting increasingly frantic around the Senegal goal

  • 64'

    Recoba has another shot - also blocked, and then the Inter Milan man is adjudged offside

  • 63'

    And Senegal do make the change. Beye comes on for Ferdinand Coly. Suprising to see the dominant right back go off

  • 62'

    And Senegal are warming up a substitute. Beye will come on soon

  • 61'

    Recoba pcisk up the ball in his own half, cuts inside and curls a perfectly weighted pass straight into Silva's path. He cracks the half-volley just wide... almost a superb goal

  • 60'

    Uruguay's huge target man Morales has now threatened Senegal as much as anyone this tournament

  • 59'

    Senegal are a bit rattled now and Uruguary have responded very well - they're really going for it

  • 58'

    Garcia picks out Reguiero, whose brought down. The free kick is taken quickly and Silva, at the far post, would have had a chance had his touch been better

  • 57'

    Diouf is brought down and the referee wants a word with Lembo - strangely his cynical fould doesn't earn a yellow card

  • 56'

    Forlan takes. He plays it back to Recoba who lashes one straight into Cisse. They appeal for a penalty as Forlan fires the rebound over.

  • 55'

    A real battle between Coly and Reguiero - the defender is penalised.

  • 55'

    Another Uruguay corner. Recoba takes, the unmarked Silva charges in and missses, Sylva drops it but gathers at the second attempt

  • 54'

    Daf clears strangely by backheeeling across his own box. Well, it worked

  • 53'

    Fadiga comes over to take and Diouf rises unmarked to head over. A great chance

  • 52'

    Senegal have one, but Diouf takes the entire Uruguay defence on in a 50-yard break to win a corner

  • 51'

    Uruguay now have five very attacking players on the pitch - Morales, Silva, Forlan, Recoba and Reguiero

  • 50'

    Recoba goes on a solo run but ends up going across the pitch before his shot is blocked

  • 50'

    Is a remarkable comeback on now? Senegal have defended well so far but they will be under pressure

  • 49'

    Morales is the target man Uruguay are looking for now. Forlan appears to have adopted a slighly deeper role.

  • 48'

    ... but Uruguay attack again with the same trio. Forlan finds Silva whose cross is only just headed over by Morales

  • 48'

    Senegal are looking for a fourth and Diouf flings himself in to try and volley home - he makes minimal contact and Carini gathers

  • 46'

    Morales was one of two half-time changes there - he and Man United goal machine Diego Forlan came on - and that really was an immediate impact. Abreu and Romero went off

  • 46'

    Uruguay kick off - and scored within 20 seconds. It's Richard Morales . Forlan's shot his Silva. his shot was blocked by Sylva and Morales finished. GOAL!

  • 45'

    Half-time - and a remarkable half of three goals and seven bookings. Senegal have defended stoutly and attacked with pace and penetration - they lead 3-0.

  • 45'

    Diouf on the counter-attack again. He turns inside Rodreiguez, goes to beat teh seocnd man and Carini comes out to get a hand to it. Diouf attempts to get the shot in again but is penalised

  • 45'

    Two more minutes - and Uruguay will probably be looking forward to the break more

  • 44'

    And it's increasingly frantic at the other end. Recoba treads on the ball, Silva has a shot blokced but Senegal withstand the pressure

  • 44'

    Coly and Camara combine down the right wing - unusually the move ends in a poor cross from Camara

  • 43'

    Silva tried to take the entire defence on but was crowded out before he could get a shot in.

  • 42'

    Who would have believed it? Senegal, 3-0 up, are on course not just to qualify but to top the group

  • 41'

    Chance for Abreu - he pokes wide after another Silva flick-on

  • 40'

    .. and another - Rodriguez goes down rather theatrically in a blatant display of, er, simulation

  • 39'

    Another booking - Coly for fouling Reguiero

  • 38'

    Reguiero in room on the left again... but a poor cross

  • 37'

    There was some confusion as to whether that was offside but Bouba Diop looked to have timed his run well and the finish was superb

  • 37'

    Camara chips in, Bouba Diop breaks past the defence and volleys sublimely past Carini - GOAL! 3-0

  • 36'

    Recoba puts in a cross / shot which goes across the face of goal and wide - goal kick

  • 36'

    With just Diouf up front, Senegal are conceding possession but will be hard to break down

  • 35'

    The ball comes to Bouba Diop - Garcia challenges and leaves his foot in there - yellow card

  • 35'

    Reguiero, who has taken up a position on the left wing, earns a throw. he then gets a chance to cross and Cisse wins a very important header.

  • 34'

    Daf clears into Silva and the striker himself chases it into the box - in the end Coly intercepts and clears

  • 33'

    The sub Regueiro puts Coly under pressure near the corner flag, but then fouls the defender to give Senegal some respite

  • 32'

    And Recoba has another corner to take. Sylva rose very well again - and he launched an attack with a quick throw

  • 32'

    Sorondo makes way and Mario Regueiro, a forward, comes on.

  • 31'

    Uruguay look as though they'll make a change already. It's Plan B for them - Plan A has failed abysmally

  • 30'

    Fadiga's corner but Henri Camara earns another off Varela

  • 29'

    Diouf's break earns a corner - how many men wil they send forward?

  • 28'

    Alvaro Recoba was once the world's best paid player - he'll need to show that quality if his side are to stay in the World Cup

  • 27'

    2-0 and Uruguay need to score three - and they have to be aware of Senegal's counter-attacking prowess

  • 26'

    GOAL! He sidefoots into the roof of the net and Senegal will surely go through now

  • 26'

    Camara switches flanks to the left, escapes a wild lunge and cuts it back for the second man coming in. It's Pape Bouba Diop...

  • 25'

    Recoba takes the corner and Senegal head away but they're being put under real pressure here

  • 25'

    Chaos in the Uruguary box - Silve finds Abreu. he's tackled but Varela's there and Cisse makes an important tackle

  • 24'

    Another free kick in Recoba range - but they try to worlk it across the box and Senegal get a block in

  • 23'

    Uruguay can launch a long throw again - but Senegal's aerial ability helps them to clear

  • 22'

    ... he goes for the curler and Sylva saves well in his bottom left-hand corner

  • 22'

    Recoba must be favourite to take...

  • 21'

    They have a free kick, conceded by Ndour 30 yards out

  • 20'

    Fadiga took that very calmly and Uruguay need to score twice

  • 20'

    Fadiga... GOAL! He sent the keeper the wrong way and Senegal lead.

  • 19'

    Penalty! Diouf is brought down by Carini - and somehow it's only a yellow card. He intercepted Montero's terrible backpass and dribbled past Carini, who tugged him down.

  • 18'

    Abreu's backheel could send Silva through... but once again his near-namesake Tony Sylva reacts quickly and is off his line to gather

  • 17'

    Senegal will be happier with the start. They only need a point and Uruguay have yet to muster a shot, despite earning a couple of corners

  • 16'

    And they still haven't... Diouf does well to take on one defender but once again, he feels he has no support and is dispossessed

  • 15'

    ... and mount a quick counter attack with Fadiga and Diouf. But they've yet to manage a shot

  • 14'

    Garcia and Recoba combine down the left and though Coly blocks the cross he concedes a corner, but Senegal's height advantage is evident as they clear...

  • 13'

    Diouf is the sole target in attack for Senegal again and the Uruguayan centre backs can out number him, as they do when Fadiga chips the ball through

  • 12'

    Senegal think they've earned a corner - instead, Diouf is penalised for being offside

  • 12'

    Sylva, who doesn't seem to like staying on his line, charges out to meet a header from Abreu

  • 11'

    Another foul and Ndour is the man on the ground. No booking this time though

  • 10'

    Fadiga curls it in, two Uruguayans collide and, strangely, they win a free kick

  • 9'

    Diouf runs at Rodriguez and earns a corner - chance for the big defenders to come up

  • 9'

    Senegal free kick 40 yards out - Fadiga, as ever, will take but Sorondo headed it away

  • 8'

    Romero brings down Fadiga - the third booking of the game

  • 7'

    Silva again involved near the Senegal box - a bright start from him

  • 6'

    Montero picks out Recoba near the corner flag. The cross is deep and Silva controls it well on his chest and fires a half-volley from an acute angle - but it's too high

  • 5'

    And Sylva comes out of his box to head clear - strange but effectrive defending as the Senegalese keeper rose above Silva

  • 5'

    Another chance for Recoba to cross - Garcia won the first header but Diatta cleared

  • 4'

    Daf slides in on Varela - another foul and another booking - that's two in three minutes

  • 3'

    Recoba curls it in but it's too high for his team-mates and Daf clears

  • 2'

    Silva goes down under Camara's tackle - and that's an early yellow card for Camara

  • 1'

    Henri Camara puts in an early cross which is easy for Carini

  •  

    Senegal kick off, knowing they could knock out two previous World Cup winners

  •  

    Senegal skipper Aliou Cisse is back and Henri Camara's fine showing against Denmark earns him a start while Uruguay have dropped right back Mendez

  •  

    The presssure's on Uruguay - the double World Champions need to beat Senegal to go through and stop the Africans reaching the last 16 in their first ever World Cup
