The Al Janoub Stadium witnessed one of the most important matches of the day. Uruguay and Ghana played their pass to the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar 2022 in group H. The “Charrúa” team needed victory to stay alive in the World Cup. Despite the fact that Uruguay beat Ghana 2-0, the “Charrúas” were left out due to goal difference. Portugal and South Korea advanced to the next round.

The match had the first 15 minutes with two teams that were enthusiastically looking for the rival goal. But while the first quarter of an hour of the game was passing, one of the first controversial plays of the game was generated. The head judge awarded a penalty in favor of Ghana, despite the dubious position of an African footballer in a previous play.

But if Uruguay does not suffer, it is not Uruguay. André Ayew stopped in front of the Uruguayan goal, but the goalkeeper Sergio Rochet dressed as a hero and managed to stop the charge that was widely announced to his left.

Sergio Rochet’s save raised the spirits of Diego Alonso’s squad. The Uruguayans advanced their lines and began to reach Lawrence Ati-Zigi’s goal with more danger, but like Rochet, the African and his defense responded very well.

But Uruguay tilted the field more and more until Giorgian De Arrascaeta’s first goal came at minute 25 of the game. The Uruguayan player took advantage of a ball that was served after the Uruguayan goalkeeper stopped a shot from Luis Suárez. Uruguay’s “10” was their hero, while Ghana’s “10” was their villain.

Six minutes later, punctually at minute 32, Uruguay would increase its lead on the scoreboard. The group “Charrúa” believed in the miracle. A great first shot from Giorgian De Arrascaeta once again increased the South American lead to 2-0.

With the Uruguayan victory and Portugal’s draw, both teams went through group H. Ghana needed to get into the gameotherwise they would say goodbye to the World Cup without passing the group stage.

For the second half, Uruguay entered their game. Uruguayan soccer is generally used to keeping results. With the score in their favour, it is very difficult to get the “Charrúa” team out of concentration and Ghana suffered for much of the second half.

With 12 minutes remaining in regulation time, Ghana had their most dangerous play of the second half. A shot by Antoine Semenyo that really passed close to Rochet’s goal.

It was the 90th minute of the game and At the Janoub Stadium came the news that South Korea had beaten Portugal 2-1. This result forced Uruguay to look for at least one more goal to be above the Asians in the table.

In this sense, the Uruguayans turned to attack again in search of that goal that would give them the classification. But despite so much insistence, the goal did not come and the South American team says goodbye to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

With the elimination of “Charrúa”, another world champion leaves, just as Germany did hours ago. In this sense, It is the end of a golden era led by Edinson Cavani and Luis Suárez, two players who shone for many years in the South American attack.

Portugal and South Korea They are the two classified from group H. Cristiano Ronaldo’s team will face the second in group Gwhile the Asians will play against the first of group G.
