Pretoria, South Africa - Itumeleng Khune had the dubious distinction of becoming only the second goalkeeper in history to be sent off at a World Cup finals when he saw a straight red Wednesday for a tackle on Luis Suarez in South Africa's 3-0 defeat to Uruguay.
With his side already trailing to a first-half Diego Forlan goal, Khune tripped Suarez in the 76th minute with the goal gaping.
Swiss referee Massimo Busacca immediately brandished a red card, meaning Khune joins Gianluca Pagliuca of Italy, who was sent off in the Azzurri's 1-0 win against Norway at the 1994 World Cup.
Forlan scored the subsequent spot-kick against substitute goalkeeper Moneeb Josephs. Alvaro headed in a third in added time.
