Seoul: Venezuela scored a late equalising goal and then held on through a penalty shootout to beat Uruguay on Thursday and reach the final of the Under-20 FIFA World Cup.

The teams drew 1-1 in Daejeon but Venezuela advanced by winning the shootout 4-3.

Venezuela goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez made the key save in the shootout on a penalty from Nicolas De La Cruz, the same player who had given Uruguay the lead from the spot in the 49th minute.

Samuel Sosa had equalised for Venezuela from a free-kick in injury time.

The Venezuelans will face either England or Italy in the final on Sunday in Suwon.
