Uruguay sunk Egypt in injury time yesterday after a header from Jose Gimenez and the reaction from this group of schoolkids sums up the magic of the competition.

These little Uruguayans couldn't be confined to the classroom after the dramatic late goal, with their joyous celebration spilling out into the yard.
