The match had an even development with scoring situations for both teams, although the justification for the result was “Charroa’s” efficiency.
Uruguay were unable to penetrate The Gambia in the first quarter of an hour but the early removal of Mansour MBE appeared as a solid possibility to break the African order.
However, Gambia managed to control the conditions and had two clear chances to take the lead despite being a man down for 30 minutes, as again Uruguay were left with 10 players after VAR intervention .
Mid-distance shots became the real offensive weapon for The Gambia, who scored several chances from distance, testing goalkeeper Randall Rodriguez.
The game went back and forth, with a physique that gave both teams little response, and with spaces left open they had clear chances at both goals.
Uruguay, who had the better of the first half, broke the zero with a great goal from Anderson Duarte, who finished with his left foot after a remarkable control from the right.
From that moment until the very end, Uruguay resisted and repeatedly wasted one-on-ones between their attackers and goalkeeper Pa Ebou Damfa.
Uruguay will now face the United States in the quarterfinals on Sunday.
