Uruguay have boosted their hopes of making the last 16 at the Under-20 World Cup with a 4-0 win over Uzbekistan.

The triumph has moved Juan Verzeri's side up to second place in Group F with one game left to play.

Gino Acevedo made the breakthrough on 38 minutes when his long-range effort found the bottom corner, before Nicolas Lopez doubled his side's advantage at the start of the second half with a composed finish after rounding the goalkeeper.

The victory was sealed just after the hour mark as Giorgian de Arrascaeta fired in, while Ruben Betancourt capped a successful afternoon by adding a fourth late on.
