Darwin Núñez was the winner on Thursday when his Uruguay took on Colombia in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying. Núñez converted an injury time penalty to help Uruguay leave the game with a point. Maximiliano Araújo drew a foul in the box from Colombian player Camilo Vargas in the 87th minute, leading to Vargas going off with a second yellow and Uruguay getting a chance to even the score at 2-2.
It’s Uruguay’s first win in the nascent World Cup qualifying campaign and leaves them in fourth place in the table.
