It was a very crucial match for both teams as they could secure a place in the Round-16 should the results favour either of them. Ghana needed a draw or a win while Uruguay needed a win at all cost and hope that Portugal defeats South Korea. On the other hand, the Ghanaians were looking for a 'sweet revenge' on Suarez after what he did to them in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The game started on a very cautious note as both teams were trying to play carefully and not commit too much. However, the Ghanaian team was rewarded a penalty but Captain Dede Ayew missed it. Uruguay went on to score two goals and eventually won the game but they couldn't qualify because South Korea won against Portugal. A win for South Korea meant that Uruguay were out although they both had 4 points. South Korea qualified because they has scored 4 goals as compared to Uruguay who had scored 2.(They qualified based on goals scores).
A sweet revenge it is for Ghana although they couldn't qualify but they are happy to see Suarez cry and Uruguay eliminated.
