    Néstor Muslera Micol

    Had little to do in the first half, only having to take a few goal kicks. In the second, he could do little on Sanchez's goal but made a couple vital saves towards the end to earn the draw.

  • Martín Cáceres

    Martín Cáceres

    May have saved a goal with his fantastic tackle in the box on Jimenez, catching up to the midfielder with his speed to stop him just before a shot from close range.

  • Sebastián Coates

    Sebastián Coates

    A secure performance at the back. Didn't make any mistakes, but he wasn't spectacular.

  • Diego Lugano

    3.00

    Diego Lugano

    The former Sao Paolo star could have opened the scoring in the opening minutes off of Forlan's cross, but the defender could not get a quality touch on the ball. At the back, he was solid as always, shutting Suazo down with great positioning.

  • Maxi Pereira

    Maxi Pereira

    Hard to notice him on the pitch other than a few clearances and passes down the heart of the field. Not his best game.

  • Á. Pereira

    Á. Pereira

    The Porto midfielder showed quality timing when deciding to join the attack, evident from his goal, which he took with ease. Also did well to get back and help out in defence and frustrating the Chilean attackers.

  • E. Arévalo

    2.50

    E. Arévalo

    Was his normal, tough and rugged self. Did well to use his strong body to contain possession and also had fantastic timing with his tackles. However, he was sloppy with passing at times, turning the ball over with a lack of precision.

  • Diego Pérez
    0

    3.50

    Diego Pérez

    Was good in the air in the middle of the field. With the ball at his feet, he found attackers who checked to the ball to start the attack.

  • Diego Forlán

    3.00

    Diego Forlán

    The Golden Ball winner at last year's World Cup didn't do much in the entire game. Couldn't get himself into good positions infront of goal but was solid in his passing with Suarez.

  • Luis Suárez

    Luis Suárez Top of the Match

    The Liverpool star should have done better with his opportunity in the first half. He didn't even make the goalkeeper work to save it, sending it towards the stands. But, was the reason why Uruguay scored as he teed up Pereira alone in the box. Almost found the net in the second half with a solid shot.

  • Edinson Cavani

    Edinson Cavani

    Did well to send Suarez through on his chance in the first half. Did not come back on in the second half.

Substitutions

    Added little to Uruguay as a sub in the final ten minutes.

    Did little after coming on for Cavani other than pass poorly.

  • S. Eguren

    S. Eguren

    Late sub who had little impact.

  • Claudio Bravo

    3.00

    Claudio Bravo

    The Real Sociedad goalkeeper did well to stop Suarez's shot in the second half. He could do little to keep out the goal as his defence failed him.

  • Gonzalo Jara
    0

    3.00

    Gonzalo Jara

    Didn't have the easiest responsibility going up against Uruguay's potent attack, but held his own mostly. Was beaten a couple times, but made up for it by linking up with the attack with classy passes before being eventually substituted.

  • W. Ponce

    W. Ponce

    The Cruz Azul defender was careful with the ball, connecting well with the midfield down the right side.

  • P. Contreras

    2.50

    P. Contreras

    Good and bad. Was positioned well on Forlan's free-kick to clear the rebound, but nearly cost his team dearly with a terrible play in the box. He did recover, though, to stop Forlan's header on the line.

  • Jean Beausejour
    0
    0
    3.00

    Jean Beausejour

    Had a decent look-in on goal before halftime, sending a shot just by the right post from the left side of the box. Made up for it with his pass to Sanchez to set up the goal.

  • Arturo Vidal

    Arturo Vidal

    Saw a powerful shot in the first half fly by the post. Other than that, did little.

  • L. Jiménez

    3.00

    L. Jiménez

    Will rue his missed chance in the box, taking too long to get the shot in before Careces halted him. Showed nothing else.

  • Gary Medel

    2.50

    Gary Medel

    The Sevilla destroyer imposed his physicality with numerous crunching tackles but made a mistake by not recovering well on Uruguay's goal as he was caught ball watching.

  • Mauricio Isla

    3.00

    Mauricio Isla

    Didn't provide the best delivery from wide, but fantastic in the middle with his ball to Jimenez. Solid performance.

  • Alexis Sánchez

    3.00

    Alexis Sánchez

    The dynamic attacker showed fantastic movement during the game, latching on to the ball no matter where it was. Found the space well for his goal to level the game with a clinical finish.

  • H. Suazo

    H. Suazo Flop of the Match

    Difficult to notice he was even on the pitch in the opening half, checking to the ball on a couple occasions to get a touch. Was subbed off in the second half.

Substitutions

  • Carlos Carmona

    Brought on midway through the second half, but did precious little.

  • E. Washing

    E. Washing

    Did well to hold the ball and play forward in his short appearance.

  • J. Valdivia

    J. Valdivia

    His pass to Beausejour to set up the goal couldn't have been any more perfect. The substitute made the most of his chance.
