The Uruguay forward is full of confidence after the Charruas' qualification for the first knockout round...

Uruguay qualified for the first knockout round of the 2010 World Cup on Tuesday by beating Mexico 1-0 courtesy of a Luis Suarez goal. The Ajax star was over the moon with his goal and made it clear that the Uruguayans are full of confidence.

"The game went very well. We've already had two good results, but our goal was to also get the three points against Mexico. Now that we've got them, we finish first in the group," said Suarez to reporters.

"I'm really happy, especially because I scored my first World Cup goal. It's an incredible feeling! As far as the result goes, we achieved what we set out to do.

"It doesn't matter now who our next opponents are. We've got what it takes to keep progressing in the competition. It's great that I scored, but  also for us, the central group, no matter who scores. This time I got the chance and I'm very happy."
