While Uruguay had both Fucile and Victorino suspended, it was not until this final group game that Mexico had any kind of disciplinary problems picking up four bookings in their 2-0 loss. It was Mexico who generated the first chance when Guillermo Franco shot from a tight angle forcing a save out of Muslera. The rest of the match was largely dictated by Uruguay with their trickery leading to some mistimed tackles and set piece opportunities. After Guardado scythed down an all but clear Arevalo the deadlock was broken by Luis Suarez ripping the ball up and over the wall.
Suarez had a second free kick eight minutes later that he thundered through a poor defensive wall leaving Oscar Perez no chance in his goal. The first half ended on a sour note when Egidio Arevalo was again brought down hard leading to a booking for Salcido but also the victim for retaliation.
Uruguay continued to control the pace of the game in the second half but were in no hurry to press the attack. Mexico were wasteful when they did gain possession, Hernandez coming closest by shooting wide in the final ten minutes.
