As a result, Portugal and South Korea were the two nations to qualify for the knockout stages.

The Uruguayan players weren’t happy full time after failing to win a penalty following a collision between Darwin Nunez and Alidu Seidu.

This led to a group of players confronting the referee and manhandling an assistant referee.

As a result, Jose Maria Gimenez, Edinson Cavani, Fernando Muslera and Diego Godin all face potential penalties for breaching FIFA’s disciplinary code regarding offensive behavior and misconduct.

Giminez could face a 15-game ban for his part in the brawl, while former Manchester United player Cavani was also filmed shoving the monitor to the sidelines as he walked down the tunnel after the game.

The Uruguayan FA faces prosecution for the same code violations, as well as a discrimination action.
