FIFA WORLD CUP 2010: Day 16 (26 June 2010)

Second Round:
Clinical finishing from Luis Suarez ensures the progress of Uruguay's best ever team in the modern era of the game. His second goal was a peach, while the first resulted from dodgy Korean defending, as always. The Koreans got their goal off a free-kick, as always. This Uruguayan might very well make the semi-finals, their first since 1962!

(After extra time)

The American dream is over. Against the sole survivors of Mama Africa, the "Comeback Kids" fell short of the mother of all comebacks, supported by former US President Bill Clinton. As always, the Americans gifted an early lead to the opposition, gratefully accepted by Portsmouth's FA Cup final penalty misser Kevin Prince Boateng. Landon Donovan led the charge, and won the equaliser through a penalty. Asamoah Gyan's solo effort, shoving away two defenders, was worthy to win any match. Ghana's secret to their success: a resolute defence and rock-solid goalkeeper Kingson. Arsenal could learn something from this. Rating: 4/5
