Ghana started strong, gaining a penalty not even 20 minutes into the game. Ayew missed it, though, and Uruguay immediately responded with two goals by Arrascaeta. Ghana could not fight back, but due to South Korea’s win against Portugal, Uruguay did not qualify for the round of 16, and neither did Ghana.

18′: The referee awarded a penalty for Ghana. Ayew took it and Rochet, Uruguay’s goalkeeper, saved it.

23′: Darwin Núñez was served a ball directly in front of the goalkeeper. The shot was about to enter, but Salisu saved the ball right on the line.

26′: Uruguay ahead. Ghana lost the ball in its own half, and Núñez crossed it for Suarez. The latter shot and the ball was saved by the goalkeeper, but the ball remained inside the box. Arrascaeta was the fastest to reach it and scored.

32′: Arrascaeta scored his second goal of the day to make it 0-2. A well-built action by Uruguay, which after conceding the penalty, took control of the game.

58′: The VAR denied a potential penalty for Uruguay.

65′: Pellistri went close to making it 0-3. His shot went wide near the left post, though.

70′: Valverde tried to surprise Ghana’s goalkeeper with a shot from outside the box. The ball bounced right in front of the latter, who was still able to save it.

81′: A great save by Rochet sent Kudus’ shot just wide of the left post. Uruguay’s goalkeeper kept the result at 0-2.

94′: Uruguay needed one goal to pass to the round of 16. Maximiliano Gómez shot from the distance, but a great save by Ghana’s goalkeeper denied Uruguay that hope.

96′: Again, Gómez went close to scoring, but missed the target this time.
