Uruguay enjoyed more possession within (FIFA 18 Coins PS4 with a safe way) the first half, while Italy looked intended for counter-attacks, relying on Andrea Favilli to provide chances up front. With two minutes left inside the half, Joaquin Ardaiz was fouled from the penalty area when making an attempt a close-range shot as well as, after referee Walter Lopez conferred with the VAR (movie assistant referee), he pointed to the spot.

Captain Nicolas de la Cruz took the obligation and, as had happened from the first match of the South American U-20 Championship, he failed to change his spot-kick as Andrea Zaccagno made a cushty save.

Substitute Amaral came to his captain's and Uruguay's relief, though. In the 76th instant, the No10 hammered in a thunderbolt of a free-kick on the corner of the penalty area into your top corner which became the decisive strike.
