Qatar World Cup: Uruguay Defeat Ghana, And Both Are Out In Cold

Giorgian de Arrascaeta 2 goals for Uruguay against Ghana today, December 2, in the ongoing World Cup competition in Qatar, were not enough to keep the two of them: the victor and the vanquished in the reckoning. This was after South Korea had beaten Uruguay to the Group H runners-up spot with victory over Portugal.

Ghana had attempted to take the lead in the 21st minute of the play when Andre Ayew’s tame penalty was easily saved by Sergio Rochet.

Uruguay made them pay with their first goals of the tournament as De Arrascaeta headed the ball over the line from close-range after a shot from Luis Suarez in the 26th minute.

He doubled their lead with a superb volley after Suarez was again involved in the buildup six minutes later.

The win lifted Uruguay to third place on four points, the same as South Korea, who squeaked through with more goals scored in the tournament after netting a late winner in a 2-1 victory over Portugal.
