It was a difficult afternoon for Uruguay, who were frustrated by the Asian side and ended up drawing 0-0.

But it was an incident in the middle of the second period that got everyone talking.

Alonso pushed his team from the touchline and got more than he bargained for when Woo-Young Jung headed the ball straight into his face from close range.

Despite the potentially painful moment, the 47-year-old responded with minimal fuss.

But fans on Twitter felt his pain.

One fan joked: “Diego Alonso took a slap in the face and pretended it didn’t happen.”

Another said: “Ouch!”

A third said: “He’ll have a glow when he gets up in the morning.”
