World Cup 2022 Group H: Uruguay heartbroken as South Korea snatch 2nd place

In a shocking turn of events, Uruguay were eliminated at the group stage of the 2022 World Cup alongside Ghana. A late goal from South Korea against Portugal, who had already qualified, helped them earn qualification against all odds. 

The South American team were victorious against Ghana by a 2-0 margin. But, with South Korea beating Portugal 2-1, they needed to score another goal to make it through. 

Uruguay and Ghana bow out of 2022 World Cup 

In a callback to the last infamous encounter between the two, Ghana were awarded a penalty in their game against Uruguay. But, just like last time, they were unable to convert. 

In spite of not winning the game, they had the last laugh, not allowing their opponents passage into the World Cup Last 16 by the finest of margins. There were several close chances that the Black Stars defended well against to reduce the margin of defeat, and extract revenge.

South Korea, on the other hand, picked up the win very late in the game, after Son Heung-Min carried the ball solo in a counter attack, and passed it to Hwang Hee Chan to make it 2-1. In doing so, they became the third AFC team to enter the knockout stages alongside Japan and Australia.
