This was a good win for Yugoslavia against a decent Uruguayan team. The match was disfigured in the second half when Ruben Cabrera and Vladimir Popović were sent off for fighting.

Colombia were 4-1 down with 20 minutes left when Marcos Coll's in swinging corner crept in at the near post. The South Americans then poured forward to complete a terrific come back, culminating in a sweeping move through the middle finished off by Klinger four minutes before full-time. Details of the strip worn by Colombia in this match have been confirmed by Efrain Sanchez, who played in goal that day.

Needing only a draw to go into the knock out phase, the Soviet Union were ahead at half-time. Sacia equalised for Uruguay for whom only a win would do and they pressed forward for the second goal they needed. Ivanov scored in the final minute to end the South American's hopes.
