Diego Godín's header on 81 minutes was the death knell for ten-man Italy as a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay spelled the end of their FIFA World Cup Group D campaign.

The Club Atlético de Madrid defender got a firm head to Gaston Ramirez's corner from the left to leave Gianluigi Buffon with no chance. It was an agonising end for Cesare Prandelli's side, who had all-but neutralised Uruguay as an attacking force with eleven men, before defending resolutely with ten after Claudio Marchisio was dismissed for a high challenge on Egidio Arévalo on 59 minutes.
