Uruguay became the last team to qualify for the 2014 World Cup to be coducted in brazil, after grinding out a goalless draw in a battle with mighty Jordan on Wednesday. 
Uruguay thrashed the Jordanians for a 5-0 lead in the first leg in Amman last week, a huge crowd at Montevideo's famous Centenario Stadium expected for more.

However Jordan wasnt as simple like the past, they frustrated the South Americans at every turn, defending in numbers, but that didnt stop the Uruguians.

Uruguay, ranked 5th, became the last of 32 teams to qualify for next year's World Cup in Brazil. 
In 2010 World Cup semifinalists Uruguay had been struggling to qualify, scraping into fifth place after mounting a late rally which saw them win four out of their five final qualifiers. 
Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile are the South American representatives at the finals.
