Luis Suarez broke down in tears after receiving the news that South Korea had snatched a late winner against Portugal to dump Uruguay out of the World Cup.
The South American giants, who have undoubtedly underperformed in Qatar, did everything they needed to do by beating Ghana 2-0 in their final Group H fixture but Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan’s late strike put South Korea through in second place in extraordinary circumstances.
Suarez had started the game and was subbed off for Uruguay in the second half, but he cut a devastated figure on the bench as news from South Korea’s match with Portugal came in.
Uruguay still had time to turn things around, as the officials had already added eight minutes of stoppage time, meaning they could still advance if they scored one more goal.
Edinson Cavani had a late penalty call overturned, a decision that stunned Uruguay’s players.
