Uruguay boss Oscar Tabarez was content following the 3-0 win over South Africa in Tshwane/Pretoria.

Two goals to Diego Forlan and one to Alvaro Pereira gave the South Americans a vital three points and Tabarez admitted things were good in the Uruguay camp.

“We are very happy," said Tabarez.

"As I told my players the history of this game was not written beforehand, we had to write it ourselves during the match and I think the result is very good indeed.

"We've beaten a very good team, who were also in a position to win the match I think it's important to note.

"Nothing has been decided in our group but I think we've taken a very important step forward."
