Italy vs Uruguay player ratings: Andrea Pirlo or Luis Suarez - who rated highest?
A look at the individual performances following Uruguay's 1-0 victory over Italy
Tuesday 24 June 2014
Diego Godin's late goal sent Uruguay through to the World Cup knockout stages at the expense of 10-man Italy in Natal just after Luis Suarez found himself at the centre of another biting storm.
Suarez, who served a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in 2013, clashed with Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in the 79th minute.
Suarez could face suspension if FIFA disciplinary officials uphold Chiellini's protests, and the incident cast a shadow over a hard-fought win for the South Americans.
Defender Godin rose highest to nudge home an 81st-minute corner to end the resistance of the Italians, who had played with 10 men since Claudio Marchisio's sending-off on the hour.
Who do you think was the man-of-the-match? Let us know in the comments below.
