Ghana has been eliminated from the 2022 FIFA World Cup as two goals from Arrascaeta sealed a win for Uruguay at the Al Janoub Stadium.
The match, which was dubbed as “revenge” or “repeat following Ghana’s grudge with Uruguay after they denied the Africans from a semi-final berth in 2010.
The final score proved to be a repeat as the South Americans ended Ghana’s hopes of reaching the 16.
Skipper Andrew Ayew had an early opportunity to send Otto Addo’s men in the lead via a penalty after Kudus was brought down in the 18 – yard box but squandered his effort.
Then De Arrascaeta , on his first start at the tournament, struck twice in six minutes to win it for the La Celeste .
Mohammed Kudus and Antoine Semenyo came close reducing the deficit but to no avail.
Ghana as well as Uruguay will begin packing as Portugal and South Korea are through to the knockout stage.
