Uruguay had fulfilled in his party, but has remained without note for the eighth of final of the Glass of the World. The 'charrúas' won to Ghana in a party in which, finally, felt comfortable and played to his antojo to dominate to the rival, but carried the bad fortune that, in the duel between Portugal and South Korea, the Asians carried to last hour the victory to leave to the 'celestial' to a goal to classify to the eighth.

The selection sudamericana knew that it could not step in false because it did not depend on yes same: it Had to win to Ghana and expect that South Korea did not win in front of Portugal, by what the stage was quite complicated. They finished doing the his, but remained on the way. In any case, Diego Alonso no especuló and took out his best available alignment with the novelty of a Giorgian of Arrascaeta quand dressed of hero for his.

It was one of the two proper names of the party, because the merit was -in principle- of a Rochet that gave a life 'extra' to Uruguay. And it is that, when it reached the chamber of hour, from the VAR asked the review of a penalti in favour of the African by a fault of Rochet on Kudos, that him trabó when it tried to finish a balloon to goal. The one of New Palmira did big under the three sticks in front of Ayew and took out the shot.

It was the action that woke up to Uruguay so that it went in in scene the second hero of the afternoon, Giorgian of Arrascaeta, that opened the marker in the equator of the first-half after Luis Suárez took advantage of of an error of the defence ghanesa after a lateral centre. 'The Gunman' hunted the balloon, controlled and gave pause to finish, although Ati-Zigi detained the launching. The refuse was for the footballer of the Flamengo, that finish finishing to the deepest of the network to put the 1-0.

It was the first of the afternoon, but also the première goleador of Uruguay in Qatar 2022 (in three parties). Four minutes afterwards arrived the second, after a good played that initiated Pellistri to yield him the balloon to Darwin Núñez, the one who finish prolonging for the apparition of an Arrascaeta that commanded a shot raso impossible to detain.

Insufficient reaction of Ghana

The 'takeoff' of Uruguay minimised the efforts of a Ghana that, up to now, had competed in all his presentations. Nevertheless, against the charrúas were turned off and without shine in the first 45', although in the second half yes looked for to react... Half, because the ones of Diego Alonso achieved to control without a lot of opposition.

And it is that had a very clear opportunity in the resumption: Bukari received only in the area and crossed too much his shot, although it finish being cancelled by offside previous of Kudus. They happened to have more control, but Uruguay also had his opportunity after a fault on Darwin inside the area, although after review remained in at all because they had touched balloon.

The feeling was that Uruguay could mark the third anytime, with Fede Valverde shooting from long distance to his antojo, but that Ghana could surprise anytime, especially by a Semenyo that did not want to renounce to the dream mundialista and signed the most important in the 80' with a shot, although it commanded it very crossed. Afterwards it was Thomas the one who tested to Rochet, but the 'celestial' pulled to time to command it was. The ghaneses woke up very late... And they finish paying it expensive, although no more than an Uruguay that, although it did what had to do, remained out of the World-wide.
