All three goals from Uruguay came from the lightning-quick counter-attack of the Celeste, who beat Brazil in an ill-tempered match that saw seven yellow cards brandished by the referee.
Mexico's 3-2 defeat of Germany was the first-ever win by Mexico at any level against Germany and came courtesy of an overhead kick of a half cleared corner - which scored in the 90th minute in off the far post.
