South Africa 2010 was one the poorer World Cups in recent memory – but it served up a doozy of a quarter-final between Uruguay and Ghana.

With an unexpected semi-final place at stake, both countries contributed to a memorable match in the cavernous Soccer City stadium.

The scores were level at 1-1 deep into extra time when a certain Uruguayan striker committed one of the most infamous acts of villainy of World Cup history.

Asamoah Gyan missed from the subsequent spot-kick and Uruguay went on to win the penalty shoot-out 4-2 – eliminating the neutral’s favourites from the competition in the process.

We’re asking you to name Uruguay’s starting XI from the match in July 2010. It’s a mix of household names and ones less familiar, so good luck getting a quick time here.
