Uruguay will face Wales in the China Cup final after Luis Suarez scored his 50th international goal in a win over Czech Republic.

Luis Suarez scored his 50th goal for Uruguay as they booked their place alongside Wales in the China Cup final with a 2-0 victory over Czech Republic.

The Barcelona forward - Uruguay's all-time leading goalscorer - netted the opener from the spot in Nanning after being brought down in the box by goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka just 10 minutes into the contest.

Uruguay to play Wales in China Cup final

Edinson Cavani added a second eight minutes before half-time with a superbly struck overhead kick, although there was some suspicion of offside against the Paris Saint-Germain frontman.

The result earns Uruguay a meeting with Wales in Monday's final, following a 6-0 triumph for the Euro 2016 semi-finalists over hosts China on Thursday in Ryan Giggs' first game in charge.

Czech Republic will face China in a third-place play-off earlier on the same day.
