Rodrigo Bentancur was bundled over in the penalty area by Jeison Murillo, allowing Luis Suarez to double Uruguay’s lead from the spot at the start of the second half.

The points were secured for Oscar Tabarez’s side when Benfica’s Darwin Nunez struck a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
