Uruguay 8 – 0 Tahiti : Scoring Summary
Uruguay: Abel Hernandez (2′, 24′, 45 + 1′, PEN 67′)
Uruguay: Diego Pérez (27′)
Uruguay: Nicolás Lodeiro (61′)
Uruguay: Luis Suárez (82′, 90′)
This could have been a lot worse than an 8 – nil scoreling with the Uruguayans started without strikers Diego Forlan, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, but coming on as second half substitutions as help the route of the Tahitians 8 – 0. Shouts out to Tahiti though, this Oceania side had absolutely no shot in any of these games but they played with class and kept their heads up all the way through the week and probably have had the two best moments so far in the tournament. The first was when they scored… dont think anyone saw that coming, and second, after being mopped up by the Uruguayans hanging out on the field to exchange jersey when they brought out the “OBRIGADO BRASIL!” banner. Thank means Thank you in Portuguese.
* Random side note * How bad can it really be for these guys.. they keep getting smashed, but they get to go back home and handle all of that disappointment in TAHITI!
Check out the highlights after the jump…..
