The Black Stars of Ghana were knocked out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup following a 2-0 defeat to Uruguay.
Uruguay were also eliminated from the competition on goals scored after South Korea’s victory against Portugal.
It was all to play for heading into the final Group H matches and Uruguay thought they had done enough in the first half as Flamengo midfielder Giorgian De Arrascaeta scored twice in quick succession.
With just minutes to play at the Al Janoub Stadium, Uruguay remained second behind Portugal, but a late South Korea winner from Wolves’ Hee-Chan Hwang against Portugal saw them depose the South Americans on goals scored – netting four to Uruguay’s two.
Ghana themselves could also have reached the knockout rounds with two late goals
Uruguay reached the knockout rounds for the first time since 2010.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
