Two-time World Cup winners Uruguay qualified for the quarterfinals for the first time in 40 years with a 2-1 victory over South Korea in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.Striker Luis Suarez scored both goals as the South Americans set up a clash with the winner of Saturday's late game between Group C winners the United States and Group D's second-placed team Ghana.
Suarez benefited from poor defending to score the opening goal in the eighth minute, but his team conceded for the first time in the South African tournament after a similarly lax effort at the back allowed Lee Chung Yong to level on 68.
Having sat back after the opening goal, that spurred the Uruguayans onto attack again and the winning goal came with 10 minutes to play as Suarez curled a superb right-foot effort off the left-hand post and into the net.

Will the small step by Kim be a giant leap for the two Koreas? Does Trump deserve any credit for the same?Ofcourse its all too early and the skeptics need much more than just photo-ops. Nonetheless, this is historic moment as Kim walked across the demarcation line at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). A...
