World Cup 2010, Uruguay Vs. South Korea: Luis Suarez Converts Diego Forlan Ball For First Goal

Uruguay has scored the crucial first goal in their Round of 16 match against South Korea, with Luis Suárez finishing into an empty net after a Diego Forlán cross took the defense out of the equation.

Forlán, from the far left of attack, played a ball across the box, perfectly between the back line and goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong.  Jung's mistimed dive  took him out of the play, with Suárez taking the ball at the far post for an easy, unmarked finish in the 8th minute

The first goal is particularly vital in this match, as Uruguay has yet to allow a goal in 278 minutes of the 2010  World Cup.
