Uruguay's Diego Forlan scored two goals in a 3-0 victory Wednesday night that pushed host South Africa to the verge of not advancing at the World Cup.
While Forlan greatly improved his country's chances of making the second round, Bafana Bafana almost certainly must beat France in its next game. Otherwise, South Africa will be the first host nation to fail to get out of the opening round.
Forlan scored on a deflected 25-yard shot in the 24th minute, then converted a penalty kick in the 80th minute for a commanding lead. Alvaro Pereira added a goal in stoppage time.
