Group C:

Uruguay – Japan 2: 2 (1: 1)

goals: Suarez (11m), 66. Gimenez – 25 and 59 Miyoshi

The South American team had a clear game and superiority in Group C against a rejuvenated Japanese side, expressed by a total of 29:12, but had to score two goals after Goya Miyoshi's goals. With 32 minutes played, Luis Suarez put themselves up 1 – 1, as José Maria Gimenez struck home from a rebound off the crossbar,

Uruguay is at the forefront of an incomplete four-point table and is unlikely to escape progress to the next round. The second Chile have three points in the lead and a duel with Ecuador is waiting for him, who in the first appearance in the championship succumbed to "Urus" 0: 4. The Japanese received a single point in two matches.

"The Japanese played aggressively. They had significantly fewer chances than us, but they managed to score two goals. They played a great game. For us, it was a warning that we should concentrate throughout the match " said the coach of Uruguay Oscar Tabarez. With the draw, the Uruguayan fans were not satisfied, but the progress numbers will not allow their team to earn a point and will probably be enough to advance.

"Ultimately, this point may be very important, but we think we've had more. The competitor attacked us a lot, did not let us go to a typical game, but we created enough chances. But we were paying for two defenses in the defense, " added Suarez.
