Senegal 3-3 Uruguay

Senegal held firm in the face of a furious second-half assault from Uruguay to clinch their place in the last 16 in an incredible match which saw 12 players booked.

Uruguay will consider themselves hard done by as Senegal sprinted into a 3-0 lead in Suwon with the aid of a controversial penalty, and an equally contentious third goal.

GRAPHIC ANALYSIS

The result sees Senegal go through in second place, after Denmark beat France 2-0 to win Group A.

Uruguay Coach Victor Pua's half-time substitutions paid dividends as Richard Morales and Diego Forlan reduced Senegal's lead.

Alvaro Recoba equalised with another controversial penalty two minutes from the end.

And in injury time, Morales missed a glorious chance which would have seen Uruguay win 4-3 and snatch a qualifying place.

Senegal spectacularly relieved the early pressure they had been under by taking the lead on 19 minutes - although it was a goal shrouded in controversy.

El Hadji Diouf tumbled as he attempted to round Uruguay goalkeeper Fabian Carini, although there appeared to be little or no contact between the two.

Referee Wegereef awarded a penalty but failed to show Carini a red card, and Khalilou Fadiga completed Uruguay's punishment by slotting home the spot-kick.

There was nothing controversial about Sengegal's second as they stretched their lead on 26 minutes.

Senegal swept out of defence and Camara squared the ball into the path of Pape Bouba Diop who finished emphatically to add to his winning goal against France.

But it did little good as Uruguay fell 3-0 behind to another controversial goal on 38 minutes.

Pape Bouba Diop appeared at least a yard offside as he volleyed in a cross via the underside of the bar, leaving Uruguay's defenders waiting incredulously for a flag that never came.

MATCH FACTS
19mins: Khalilou Fadiga puts Senegal ahead form the penalty spot.
26mins: Pape Bouba Diop makes it 2-0.
38mins: Pape Bouba Diop scores his second and Senegal's third.
46mins: Richard Morales pulls one back for Uruguay.
69mins: Diego Forlan's spectacular volley makes it 3-2.
88mins: Recoba levels from the penalty spot.
90mins: Morales heads wide from two yards out.

Uruguay were given a ray of hope when one of desperate coach Pua's half-time substitutions scored within 20 seconds of the restart.

Dario Silva's shot was blocked and Morales followed up to tap in.

It was the signal for Uruguay to lay siege to Senegal's goal and the South Americans closed the gap even further on 69 minutes, through a spectacular volley from Forlan.

Senegal were hanging on by their fingernails and Forlan ran clear only to roll his shot inches wide of the target.

Two minutes from time Recoba equallised from the penalty spot but in injury time Morales somehow headed wide from two yards out with the goal at his mercy.
