    • 19:39 MISS! Buffon saves Forlan's spot-kick.
    • 19:39 Diego Forlan is first up.
    • 120' And so, we're going to PENALTIES!
    • 120' FT: Uruguay 2-2 Italy
    • 119' Late effort from Uruguay to get the win, with Gargano shooting from long-range. Buffon saves well though.
    • 114' Edinson Cavani takes a rare effort at goal in this extra time. Just a wayward shot, in all honesty. Buffon not troubled.
    • 110' SECOND BOOKING: Montolivo (Italy)
    • 108' Speculative from Candreva. He says Muslera got a touch, the referee disagrees.
    • 105' The second 30 minutes resume.
    • 105' SUB (Uruguay): Arevalo off, Perez on.
    • 105' HT (ET): Uruguay 2-2 Italy
    • 102' Edinson Cavani breaks clear, ready to fire at goal, but excellent defending from Leandro Bonucci.
    • 99' What a pass from Alvaro Pereira, curling into the left-hand channel for Luis Suarez to run on to, but sound defending from Chiellini to jockey the Liverpool man off the field.
    • 98' Penalty claim for Uruguay. Godin was challenged by Aquilani from behind, and it looked like the Fiorentina playmaker didn't touch the ball.
    • 97' It's tame stuff from both sides. Tired legs out there, especially on the Italian side.
    • 95' Strong sun in Salvador. The seats bathed in sunshine are empty though! Everyone is moving into the shade.
    • 93' SUB (Italy): Astori off, Bonucci on.
    • 90' Extra Time begins ...
    • 90' How do we see this going? Will it come down to more magic from Cavani?
    • 90' So, this is the second time in four days Italy have played extra-time. How will they cope? A further 30 minutes to decide the third-place.
    • 90+3' FT: Uruguay 2-2 Italy
    • 90+2' Italy win a free-kick on the far-side of the penalty area. El Shaarawy was upended by Caceres. Candreva's delivery was disappointing. Extra time beckons ...
    • 90' Three additional minutes have been added in this game. It's still 2-2.
    • 89' Davide Astori receiving some treatment on the field. Looks like a knock from an earlier incident with Alvao Pereira, or cramp.
    • 84' Substitute Alberto Aquilani - former Liverpool midfielder, now Fiorentina - tees up a neat shot well-saved by Muslera. Entertaining end to this game.
    • 81' SUB (Italy): Diamanti off, Giaccherini on.
    • 80' YELLOW: Ricardo Montolivo (Italy)
    • 79' SUB (Uruguay): Maxi Pereira off, A.Pereira on
    • 77' GOAL! It's another free-kick. This time ... Edinson Cavani with a special, special goal from 30 yards. It's 2-2.
    • 73' GOAL! Alessandro Diamanti with a fantastic free-kick at the edge of the box. Beautifually taken. Curling, rolling and found the corner. 2-1 Italy.
    • 71' Edinson Cavani (Uruguay)
    • 69' SUB (Italy): De Rossi off, Aquilani on.
    • 67' SUPER DOUBLE-SAVE! Buffon denies Diego Forlan not once, but also from the rebound. Great goalkeeping.
    • 60' YELLOW: Luis Suarez (Uruguay)
    • 57' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! Edison Cavani strokes the ball across Buffon from inside the box. Great finish. Gargano on the break, slid in the Napoli forward and he did the rest. 1-1.
    • 55' SUB (Uruguay): C.Rodriguez off, A.Gonzalez
    • 54' YELLOW: Giorgio Chiellini (Italy)
    • 54' Finally! A shot at goal since half-time. It's Arevalo with a half-volley from the edge of the box, straight into Buffon's gloves.
    • 50' We've just seen the goalline technology camera on our feed. It took over 30 minutes to see who scored. A bit long?
    • 46' Heavy challenge from behind by Diego Godin. Should've probably resulted in a caution there.
    • 45' We're underway again for the second period.
    • 45' UPDATE: FIFA have studied the goal-line technology and given the Italian goal to Davide Astori.
    • 45' Despite the huge gaps in the bottom-tier of the stadium, this is an impressive venue in Salvador.
    • 45' The teams slowly coming on to the pitch. It might be a third-fourth place play-off but the fans are certainly enjoying themselves.
    • 45+2' HT: Uruguay 0-1 Italy
    • 45' Two minutes of added time.
    • 44' A tactical shuffle for Uruguay. It's 3-4-3 for them now.
    • 41' Italy's turn to have a shot at goal. This time Candreva, again, bursting into the box and curling into Muslera's arms.
    • 38' No problems for Buffon so far. Uruguay being forced into speculative, long-range efforts. Forlan with another there.
    • 36' Maxi Pereira comes close from around 15 yards out, after being fed in by Cavani and turning 180 degrees and being denied by Buffon.
    • 31' GOOD STOP! Muslera palms the ball clear of goal to block the instinctive El Shaaraway who turned inside, controlled and fired a right-foot shot at goal.
    • 30' OFFSIDE GOAL! Cavani is offside, as he latches on to a free-kick and nods to the right-side of Buffon. Nice header, but still 1-0 Italy.
    • 29' Ambitious from Diego Forlan who strikes, a long way from goal, perhaps, 40 yards which Buffon is in no danger.
    • 27' Edison Cavani filling in at left-back with Caceres off the field recieving treatment.
    • 26' SAVE! Buffon palms over the bar to deny Luis Suarez from a tight angle.
    • 27' Neat move involving El Shaaraway and Gilardino, but the No.14's touch was awful inside the box and the ball rolls out of play.
    • 25' Official information crediting the goal to Alessandro Diamanti, which certainly is strange. Either a Muslera O.G or Davide Astori with a touch on the line.
    • 24' GOAL! It was an Italy free-kick, my mistake. Diamanti's curling free-kick catches Muslera off-guard and the ball clips the crossbar and into the net. Looks like a Muslera O.G.
    • 23' Martin Caceres clumsy in his defending there. Bundles over former West Ham man Diamanti. Free-kick to Uruguay.
    • 18' SHOT OVER! Candreva again involved. He has had a positive start to the game. De Rossi finding him in space centrally, but he blazes over.
    • 17' Remember a number of changes to this Italy side from the Spain semi-final. No Andrea Pirlo in the heart of midfield.
    • 15' Muslera makes a solid save from Candreva, who was on-rushing to De Sciglio's neat cut-back and he hits the target. Possibly could have scored from 15 yards.
    • 13' Ripple of noise from the neutral crowd .... for a Mexican wave!
    • 11' Good save from Buffon. Forlan with a 20 yard free-kick, low, under the wall and well saved by the Italian GK.
    • 8' Chiellini heads wide! Good free-kick from Diamanti, and the near-post run from the Juve defender caught the Uruguay defence flat-footed.
    • 5' Still no goals in Salvador, but Luis Suarez creating a good move from the right side. Cavani on the left couldn't find a light blue shirt inside the box.
    • 0' We're underway.
    • 17:04 Teams: URUGUAY: Muslera, Lugano, Godin, Pereira, Caceres, Gargano, Rodriguez, Arevalo, Suarez, Forlan, Cavani… Subs: Castillo, Silva, Coates, Aguierregaray, Scotti, Pereira, Eguren, Lodeiro, Perez, Ramirez, Gonzalez, Hernandez /// Italy: Buffon, Maggio, Chiellini, Astori, De Sciglio, Candreva, De Rossi, Montolivo, Diamanti, Gilardino, El Shaaraway… Subs: Sirigu, Marchetti, Barzagli, Bonucci, Aquilani, Marchisio, Cerci, Pirlo, Giaccherini, Giovinco
