Giorgian de Arrascaeta scored twice to help Uruguay beat Ghana 2-0, but La Celeste are leaving Qatar 2022 after South Korea’s win.

Uruguay failed to progress to the World Cup round of 16 despite a 2-0 win over Ghana, who were left to rue Andre Ayew’s early penalty miss.

La Celeste looked set to finish second in Group H, but South Korea’s late winner against Portugal saw them progress by scoring more goals than Diego Alonso’s side.

In their first meeting since a controversial World Cup quarter-final in 2010, when Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty after Luis Suarez was sent off for a goal-line handball, Ghana again paid the price for a missed free-kick. – this time Ayew failed to find the back of the net.

Giorgian de Arrascaeta scored twice shortly after to seal victory for Uruguay, but it wasn’t enough to see him avoid an early exit along with Ghana.
