SOUTH AFRICA 0-3 URUGUAY A thoroughly impressive display from Uruguay who for my mind have announced themselves as dark horses to make a real impact in this World Cup. Oscar Tabarez's side dominated from the off with the marauding Forlan making fools of South Africa's clueless defenders. He was the conductor of everything the South Americans did going forward, finding space and time to score a wonderful first goal and create numerous chances. The pattern continued after the break, with Bafana just lacking the quality and guile - but not the work ethic - to unlock Uruguay's back line. Forlan's second from the spot ended the contest and with keeper Khune and Dikgacoi now suspended for their do-or-die clash with France next week, it's hard to see South Africa making it to the knockout stages. Full time in Pretoria, South Africa 0 Uruguay 3.
FULL TIME And that's full time in Pretoria. Silence greets the whistle from the desolate hosts.
SOUTH AFRICA 0-3 URUGUAY Uruguay cap a wonderful night for them with an icing-on-the-cake third. Forlan rakes wide to Suarez whose cross is bumbled over the line by ALVARO PEREIRA.
NO PANIC No panic here for Uruguay - they've enjoying all the possession and South Africa don't have the inclination to win it back. Khumalo does, though, deny Forlan a shot at goal with a decent challenge.
ADDED TIME We're into the first of five added minutes. Loftus Versfeld is half empty.
URUGUAY SUB Sebastian Fernandez replaces Edinson Cavani up front for Uruguay. For my money that change will be repeated on Tabarez's team sheet before their next game against Mexico.
STRAIGHTFORWARD SHOTS Tshabalala and Mphela both give it a go from range, but neither attempt seriously tests Muslera's reflexes.
WOEFUL ATTEMPT Cavani caps his frustrating evening with yet another woeful shot on goal. Uruguay are three-on-three and Forlan unselfishly plays to his fellow striker, but after drifting inside his low drilled effort is straight at Josephs.
NO PENALTY Moriri plays to Tshabalala who is free on the edge of the area, but his touch is ludicrously heavy. The ball rolls to Gaxa who goes to ground under a nothing Alvaro Pereira touch. No penalty.
LOST HEART Some of the home fans have lost the faith and are leaving the stadium in their droves. We're guaranteed at least five minutes of injury time I reckon - four for the penalty and one more for substitutions made - so it's not over yet.
SOUTH AFRICA 0-2 URUGUAY Nope, you don't save those. Josephs and Khune combined wouldn't have got near it - DIEGO FORLAN picks his spot and his spot happens to be the extreme top left corner of the net. The whole Uruguay team, and a fair few subs, celebrate together. A key moment in their World Cup and South Africa's.
NOT OFFSIDE Replays show Suarez was definitely not offside. That's a relief for the neutral - no injustice here.
PIENAAR SUB Steven Pienaar is the man to be sacrificed as Josephs takes to the field to a fresh blast of vuvuzelas.
STILL DEBATING Meanwhile South Africa's players are still debating with Mr Busacca about the decision. Think they reckon Suarez was offside when the ball rebounded back into the box. We've yet to see a replay.
NEW KEEPER Moeneeb Josephs is the back-up keeper. He obviously wasn't expecting to come on - the Orlando Pirates player hasn't even got his boots on. Diego Forlan waits patiently with the ball in his hands.
PENALTY! RED CARD! Could be game over now. It's ping pong inside the box and the ball suddenly drops to Suarez, one-on-one with the keeper. Khune takes him out - that's a penalty and, after a few seconds of desperate pleading from the hosts, a red card for Khune. Definite contact and no one was covering, so hard to argue with the decisions.
POSSESSION Good possession from the hosts and Uruguay are forced to get ten men behind the ball. However, it comes to nothing with South Africa once more lacking the guile to create an opening.
TIME RUNNING OUT It might have to come from a set piece for South Africa - that looks like their best hope for me. However, Tshabalala's latest free kick from the right doesn't beat the first man, and the Pienaar sees a hopeful 30-yarder blocked. Time is running out for Bafana.
INTO THE STANDS Another chance for Cavani to impress as the ball sits up invitingly 20 yards out, but he finds the stands.
URUGUAY SUB Midfielder Alvaro Fernandez replaces the injured Fucile. That should see Alvaro Pereira switch to left back.
FUCILE DOWN Fucile is still feeling the effects of that earlier Dikgacoi challenge. Looks like he won't be able to continue.
MODISE SHOT Modise tries his luck from range but it's down Muslera's throat.
CAVANI CHANCE Can't say I've been too impressed with Cavani this evening. Every chance that has fallen to him, the Palermo striker has completely spurned. Forlan sand wedges a cross from the left flank from which Cavani really should find the target with a sweeping volley. However, he gets his bearings all wrong and the ball dribbles wide.
BETTER That's better. Gaxa bends a decent cross from the right and Uruguay's back four fall asleep for the first time tonight. They leave Mphela to steal a yard at the near post, but he can't quite direct his header goalwards from a tight angle. He needed to glance it rather than go at the ball full pelt with his forehead.
NO MOMENTUM South Africa just aren't building up any momentum here. As it is they're going to have to rely of a moment of individual genius, or a Uruguay mistake, to drag them back into this game.
LUCKY BOY Dikgacoi is very fortunate to avoid his third booking of the tournament, and a second on the night, for a late sliding challenge on Fucile. Don't think the ref saw it, otherwise Dikgacoi would surely be off.
PEREIRA SHOT Right back Maxi Pereira bursts forward to good effect once more, using Forlan as a decoy before lashing just past the angle of post and bar from the right of the box. Uruguay's chances are racking up, but they still only lead by a single goal.
SET PIECES Back come Uruguay through that man Forlan, with two expert deliveries from a free kick and a corner. Gaxa crucially nods behind the free kick, before Suarez can't quite get a shot away from the corner.
WEATHERED THE STORM South Africa seem to have weathered the Uruguay storm at the start of this half. Now, can that substitution galvanise them?
SOUTH AFRICA SUB Surprise! It's Morini, of the Surprise variety, on for South Africa. In other words, attacking midfielder Surprise Morini has replaced holding player Letsholonyane.
DOMINANCE INCREASED So it hasn't been the start to the second half South Africa would have hoped for. In fact if anything Uruguay's dominance has increased. At this rate it'll be 2-0 before long.
FREE HEADER Forlan, taking all Uruguay's set pieces tonight, sends in a pinpoint free kick from the left flank. It's to the unmarked Lugano but the captain gets his timing all wrong and stoops too low - the ball bounces off his back and to safety. Big chance.
PENALTY SHOUT Suarez, back on the field with cotton wool shoved inside his top lip, goes down on the far right edge of the box under Khumalo's stray leg. He goes to ground far too easily though and referee Busacca says no penalty. Oscar Tabarez is furious on the sidelines, but I think that's the correct decision.
EVADES EVERYONE A dinked Forlan free kick from the left of the South Africa box somehow evades everyone in the six yard box, including hesitant keeper Khune.
SUAREZ DOWN Suarez takes a stray arm in the face and has blood dribbling from his mouth. The Ajax man will need to change his shirt.
CAVANI CHANCE Excellent play from Suarez who takes advantage of a slack Mokoena pass and is suddenly free down the left. He gets to the byline and crosses low, towards Cavani for a tap-in, but a crucial toe-in from Masilela denies the striker. Last-ditch defending of the highest order.
INSPIRATION NEEDED So who fancies stepping up to become South Africa's next hero? They need to find some inspiration - or luck - from somewhere.
SECOND HALF No changes at the break and the second half is underway.
HALF TIME Very accomplished half from the Uruguayans who haven't had to work too hard for their 1-0 lead. Forlan has been the best player on the pitch by a country mile and it's his special goal which separates the two sides.
ROW Z Arevalo fancies his chance from 30 yards, but it finds row Z and not the back of the net.
BOOKING Crying shame for Kagisho Dikgacoi who will now miss South Africa's final group game. He takes out Suarez to earn his second booking of the tournament.
NOT ENOUGH URGENCY There's just not enough urgency from South Africa down the flanks, and Uruguay are organised and resolute enough to repel anything down the midfield. The hosts are pressing the South Americans enough when they don't have the ball, either.
MPHELA CHANCE Modise clips a cross towards Mphela, on the penalty spot. He gets good power on the header but not enough accuracy, with the ball dropping a yard wide. Half chance, at best.
LACKING QUALITY Patient build up from the hosts but they're just lacking that bit of quality - possessed by Forlan and Suarez - to create anything meaningful.
FROLICKING FORLAN Forlan is running this game for Uruguay. He's popping up all over South Africa's half and no one is picking him up.
CLEARED WITH EASE Corner for South Africa. They work it short and Uruguay clear with clear.
SUAREZ SHOT If they're not careful they could find themselves out of this game before long, the hosts. Suarez looks bang up for this and he finds the side netting with a brisk turn and shot past Khumalo.
FLAT It's gone a touch flat inside Loftus Versfeld. Bafana Bafana need to pick themselves up.
LUNG-BURSTING RUN Lung-bursting run from Mphela who takes on Fucile and hares all the way to the right byline, but when he gets there he's run out of steam and the tired cross dribbles to a Uruguay defender.
PECKER UP Keep-ball from the South Americans who have got their pecker up. The attack culminates in a Suarez cross which drifts straight behind.
PECKER UP Keep-ball from the South Americans who have got their pecker up. The attack culminates in a Suarez cross which drifts straight behind.
DEFLECTED Replays show the shot got a slight deflection off Mokoena, which accounted for the quite vicious dip on the ball to beat the helpless Khune.
SOUTH AFRICA 0-1 URUGUAY Talk about party poopers... however, we may have just seen the best goal of the World Cup so far. South Africa just can't deal with him in the pocket behind the midfield and DIEGO FORLAN has made them pay, turning and lashing a swerving 30-yard bullet which bends over Khune. Fabulous hit.
SUAREZ SHOT That's what Luis Suarez can do. The 23-year-old with ten goals to his name from 31 caps, turns Khumalo and puts his laces through a 20-yarder from the right of the box, which unfortunately for him is straight at Khune.
EVENLY MATCHED Little to choose between these sides now - South Africa have found their mojo and are playing it nicely around midfield.
GOOD SPELL Tshabalala is at the heart of eveything South Africa are doing here, and the hosts are enjoying a good spell of pressure. His inswinging free kick causes Uruguay a few problems but they eventually clear ahead of Mphela.
OVERLY KEEN He's got his mind set on personal glory, Tshabalala, it seems. With Pienaar overlapping and completely free on the left of the box, the midfielder attempts a not-so-clever chip from 20 yards and keeper Muslera goes untroubled again. He's keen, this fella, but perhaps too much so.
MILES OVER Tshabalala, with dreams of repeating his heroics of Friday afternoon, can't shoot quick enough when receiving the ball 35 yards from goal. Needless to say the rushed effort is miles over the bar.
DON'T PANIC South Africa certainly won't be panicking yet, despite their rather sluggish start. Mexico dominated the early stages of the opening game, but the hosts soon recovered.
IN THE HOLE Forlan is getting plenty of joy in that hole behind the front two. He finds room to attempt a through ball, ala Robinho to Elano from last night, but Edinson Cavani isn't on the same wavelength and the ball rolls for a goal kick.
ALL URUGUAY It's all Uruguay. Forlan clips a deep free kick a fraction over captain Lugano's head.
GOING FOR IT And now left-back Jorge Fucile, making his World Cup debut, bombs in from the left touchline and drags a right-footed shot wide from the edge of the box. Fantastic start from the South Americans - they're really going for this.
SUAREZ SHOT Forlan's loitering yields an early chance - the Atletico Madrid man slots a nice pass into the area for Luis Suarez, but he slices wide off-balance from 10 yards.
LOITERING Incidentally Forlan is loitering around the South African midfield in a more withdrawn role. Bit unusual for such a master poacher, but then again he was creating all Uruguay's chances - for himself - against France.
INTO THE WALL The second attempt is straight into the wall.
BOOKING Twenty-five yard free kick for Uruguay. Forlan lines it up but Pienaar blatantly breaks from the wall to block it. No way he's 10 yards, and that's an early yellow card for South Africa's talisman.
SET PIECE DANGER Set piece danger from the hosts through a free kick and a corner, both sent into the heart of the Uruguay box. Good defending from the South Americans both times denies a shooting chance.
MARAUDING RUN Maxi Perreira, who played in midfield against France but is an attacking right back tonight, goes on an early marauding run, taking on two players before a heavy touch ends the move. Still, that's more positive intent than his side showed in 90 minutes the other night.
KICK OFF The hosts get the ball rolling.
THE ANTHEMS The positively operatic Uruguay national anthem and South Africa's altogether more royal equivalent duly follow. Kick off is just moments away.
TEAMS OUT Massimo Busacca leads the sides out to a cacophony of vuvuzelas.
SINGING FOR SUCCESS Such a heart-warming sight; South Africa's players sing their cheery hearts out as the two teams line up in the tunnel. They really are the heartbeat of this tournament - the World Cup needs them to win tonight.
ATTACK ATTACK After plenty of perceived negative football in the World Cup's first round of matches, it's refreshing to see Uruguay playing with three out-and-out strikers tonight. Palermo forward Edinson Cavani has been drafted into their XI to join Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez. South Africa will also surely attack, with a win for either side forging a likely path to the second round.
PREDICTION On paper there's not much to choose between these two, but home advantage may give South Africa the edge. South Africa 2 Uruguay 1.
WHAT'S AT STAKE? Defeat is unthinkable for both sides, particularly South Africa for it would leave them with a do-or-die clash against 2006 finalists France. Victory, though, could see either team take charge of what looks like a very even Group A.
ONES TO WATCH Someone needs to step forward and become a hero for South Africa; could than man be Teko Modise? He looked tricky and bright on the right flank last time around. For Uruguay, Luis Suarez has the ability and skill to unlock South Africa's defence.
STAR PLAYERS Steven Pienaar is the star of the South African side. The Everton midfielder has a genuine touch of class about him, but will need to up his performance level from the Mexico game if he's to have a big impact on this tournament. Diego Forlan was head and shoulders above any of his Uruguay team mates against France, creating chances from nothing.
TOURNAMENT SO FAR Both experienced draws in their opening games, although South Africa's was far more exciting for the neutral than Uruguay's. Bafana Bafana drew 1-1 with Mexico with Rafael Marquez cancelling out Siphiwe Tshabalala's brilliant opener. Oscar Tabarez's charges cancelled out France in what can only be described as a 0-0 bore.
THE REF Respected Swiss ref Massimo Busacca will be the man in the middle in Pretoria. The 41-year-old, a managing director by trade, appeared at the 2006 World Cup and more recently took charge of Bayern Munich's 3-0 Champions League semi final win at Lyon.
STADIUM One of the oldest stadium's in the country, Loftus Versfeld was originally built in 1906. It holds a fraction over 50,000 seats and hosted the only African victory of the tournament thus far - Ghana's 1-0 win over Serbia.
EARLY TEAM NEWS Carlos Alberto Parreira is widely expected to replace left back Lucas Thwala with the more experienced Tsepo Masilela, a change which occurred last time out against Mexico. Uruguay will be without youngster Nicolas Lodeiro after his impetuous sending off against France.
INTRO South Africa's unforgettable journey on their historical World Cup ride continues apace with a crucial fixture against Uruguay in Pretoria. Bafana Bafana came so close to opening the tournament with a memorable victory, coming up just short against a dangerous Mexican side, but can ill-afford a repeat result if they harbour hopes of reaching the knockout stages.
