Here’s a look at Uruguay’s last chance to add a second goal in stoppage time, after they’d just stopped an Italian onslaught.

A solo sprint.

It’s greedy, and it’s ridiculously close to the keeper.

Still, it didn’t stop them from winning.

With a 1-0 win over Italy, Uruguay had reached the top of the Under-20 World Cup for the first time ever, and the stadium had turned into a festive, frenzied atmosphere.
