The United Arab Emirates And Uruguay Are Tied After Two Spectacular Goals

Underdogs the UAE took the lead first, but medal-favorites Uruguay struck back with a tremendous free-kick score.

Posted on

Here's the UAE goal. After a beautiful pass by Omar Abdulrahman, Ismaeli Matar evades Uruguayan keeper Martin Campana and puts it in the back of the net.

This is the first time the UAE has qualified for the Olympic men's soccer tournament, and they'd so far stymied Uruguay's Luis Suarez, who might be the best soccer player at the London Games.

That is, until Suarez drew a foul and Gatson Ramirez struck this perfect curving free-kick.

And people say soccer is boring.
