So it's the USA or Ghana for Uruguay in the next phase, another game you can follow with us. For now, though, I shall bid you farewell. Many thanks for all your emails.
A Suarez double sends Uruguay into the last eight. It looked hairy for a moment for the South Americans when South Korea levlled, but the second strike from Suarez was a worthy winner of any football match, and kudos to him. Commiserations, of course, to Johnny, who lost out on two bets today.
OFF THE LINE! Oh, Lee Dong-Gook, you wally. He has a real chance but rushes the shot. It is a low strike and squeezes under the keeper despite a touch but it fails to have enough power to roll over the line as Uruguay turn and thump clear.
South Korea need a goal, and fast. Uruguay have a cluster of players stationed on their 18-yard line.
Just how will South Korea respond? And what of their opponents? Will they sit back once again? Meanwhile, Johnny must be feeling sick. Change: two-goal hero Suarez is replaced by Alvaro Fernandez.
That. Is. Some. Goal. A corner is only half-cleared and Suarez takes up possession. He shifts the ball to his right and then bends a cracker home in off the post. A super finish. Game over?
It's raining cats and dogs out there. Luckily for some of us, there is a heatwave going on in Britain. Something to note: that's the first goal Uruguay have conceded at this World Cup, I think.
Jeepers creepers. Suarez is in. He's got a free header on goal following yet more pants defending by South Korea. But his header fails to go in. In fact, it matched the quality of the defending.
Lee Chung-Yong should have scored another. He was slid through wonderfully but his shot lacked power and was straight at the exposed keeper. 'Oh, you lemon,' Johnny probably shouted at the screen. Or something to that effect.
Cha Du-Ri goes into the book for something of which I am not sure. No replay to confirm yet. Well, don't we have ourselves a game on here. And shiver me timbers, it should have been 2-1 to South Korea...
Boom, Lee Chung-Yong scores. The Bolton man takes advantage of some ropey keeping as he nods in from close range. The keeper weakly tried to claim a loose ball. Game on, and the drinks could be on Johnny.
Diego Perez is a 30-year-old midfielder who plies his trade at Monaco. Thanks, internet. Uruguay could pinch one on the counter here, I feel.
The Mexican Wave has started. And, if you believe Mick McCarthy, that is a sure sign the game is excrement. (Mick's about right).
Hmmm, and hmmm again. South Korea are dominating possession but not really doing anything with it. Long balls forward are useless while their on the deck play has been neat but lacked a final through ball.
Save! Park Ji-Sung nods at goal and Muslera plucks the ball out of the air with an over-elaborate dive. Heart-in-mouth stuff for Johnny. Oh, and South Korean fans.
Uruguay are holding a very deep line. No shock really, but it is making life awfully hard for South Korea.
The Uruguayans love to defend, don't they? A key block denies South Korea, but the move has got their fans buzzing.
Loves-to-throw-his-money-away-Johnny update: he claims he now has 50 euros on South Korea to go through at 6/1. That does seem awfully bold. My mate who I was supposed to be meeting tonight is now working, so if you win Johnny, you can buy me a pint of bitter, or five.
Argh, that was the chance. The ball drops in the box to Park Chu-Young, who thrashes at his shot and blasts it over. Big chance.
Ooo. Really promising run from Lee Young-Pyo results in a cross which is bumbled out for a corner. Well played the South Korea left-back.
Criminal pass from Kim Jung-Woo Yellow finds Suarez, who opts to shoot rather than pass. Selfish, really. He had team-mates left and right while the strike was limp.
The co-commentator I am listening to just moaned about how he has two days off after this game and the weather is forecast to be rainy. Oh, you poor lamb.
Another fun pair of glasses for Edgar Davids on television. "Width," says Gareth as we return to the action. Indeed.
There we have it, 45 minutes of football. Uruguay are in front thanks to some toilet defending from South Korea. Suarez bagged the goal. The South Koreans had hit the post prior to the opener while they can count themselves lucky not to have conceded a penalty for a handball.
Straight into the wall by Park Chu-Young. Up the other end, Uruguay should have had a spot-kick, I feel. A shot looks goalbound but strikes a stray arm. Nothing doing from the ref.
Handball?! Was that a penalty? Well, no, it was not given, but it looked like one. More to follow...
Eye spy with my... nah, things have not got that bad, but it is hardly breathtaking. The trouble is, Uruguay are ruddy good at defending.
Cha Du-Ri has a pop from some range. It is a decent hit, smashed with venom but it fails to come down in time. The manager likes it though, clapping in the player's direction.
Fabulous pass from Forlan finds Maxi Pereira, who then tries something ridiculous as he attempts a scissor kick from around 35 yards out. Needless to say, it comes to nothing.
A teasing cross comes into the Uruguay box and Muslera has to be careful when claiming. Meanwhile, Kim Jung-Woo goes into the book for a rash tackle.
The surface is rotten. The ball's bouncing all over the gaffe. This could lead to a goal at some point, I am sure of it.
Park Chu-Young floats a free-kick out for a goal kick. He's been good, Park Chu-Young, but that was a blot on his CV.
Just seen a replay of the reason Suarez 'offside'. Replays indicate he was in fact on when Perez tackled.
South Korea are working the ball nicely up to the 18 yard line but just can't get into the area. Uruguay are defending very strongly.
The ground is nowhere near full. Sugar, as I type, Suarez is almost in but the flag is up for offside. It all came after some dawdling from South Korea at the back.
Al Parker reckons this will finish 2-1 with Forlan scoring the winner. Al goes as far as to suggest a return to United for Forlan for next season.
Some neat play from South Korea almost results in a way in on goal but Lugano is there to shut the door. Uruguay then threaten to pounce forward but the attack fizzles out.
Park Ji-Sung has unsurprisingly looked South Korea's best outlet so far. Uruguay are cruising though, in all truth.
Just seen another replay of the goal. Quite what the goalkeeper was thinking is beyond me. He just flopped on the four like a reeled in fish.
Well the goal should certainly add more spice to what has already been an entertaining game. Uruguay look dangerous on the counter, by the way.
Oh, it's rank defending. Forlan bends in a cross from the left and keeper Jung Sung-Ryong comes out but completely misses the low delivery. Suarez is there at the back post, thanks to the sleeping Lee Young-Pyo, and taps into an empty net from an acute angle. Completely against the run of play, that one.
All manner of scrambling goes on in the Korean box before Forlan has a pop after a loose ball finds him. The keeper has it easily though. Good start to this game. I am pleased.
WOODWORK! Park Chu-Young trots up and bend a fabulous ball over the wall. But the strike smacks against the post. Fine effort.
Lee Young-pyo is called into action after some shaky defending from his side. Park Ji-Sung then leads a South Korean counter but his final touch lets him down.
South Korea's turn now. Every player bar one opting for a hand on heart. The other chooses a salute.
A certain TV channel just did a feature on Forlan's incredible turnaround from his days at United to his time in Spain. He has been prolific ever since leaving Old Trafford. So much so, that I backed him to score in each group game this summer. Damn you, Diego!
Johnny got 4/1 on Forlan to score the first goal. Should that come in, I predict a fine evening of merriness for you my friend. It will be interesting to see how sides approach the knockout stage. We will see a reversion to 10 behind the ball and uninspiring stuff. I frickin' hope not.
Our chums at Sky Bet have the following to say on the game: "Uruguay 5/6, Draw 12/5, South Korea 7/2. Uruguay have been a really popular selection today, they're 5/6 to win the game and should they oblige it would be a bad start to the day for us. In the first goalscorer market Diego Forlan has been heavily backed, we've had to shorten his odds to 4/1 from 9/2. "
In case you have not seen this already, may I nudge you in its direction. Quite probably the best thing you will ever see. Come back here after viewing though, mind.
Johnny C has 50 smackers on Forlan to grab the first goal. What odds did you get, sir? And I of course presume you used our lovely friends at Sky Bet.
Zak is gunning for a 2-0 Uruguay triumph with Forlan at the double in a bid to aid his Fantasy Team.
After interviewing Brighton manager Gus Poyet on Thursday (shameless plug), the former Uruguay international was quietly confident that his nation would see off South Korea today.
Michael, who is tuning in from Hong Kong, is hoping for a South Korean win and is predicting that Park will grab the first goal.
For your information: the winner of this fixture will play the victor of USA v Ghana, who play this evening.
Let me know your predictions for the encounter, where your tuning in from (hopefully you are enjoying the gorgeous weather whilst reading the commentary from some sort of mobile device) and your tips for who may shine in Port Elizabeth - surely Diego Forlan is the man to watch out for.
