Doha, Qatar | QNA | Giorgian de Arrascaeta scored twice today as Uruguay beat Ghana 2-0, but it was not enough to keep them in the World Cup after South Korea beat Portugal in the groups other game.

Uruguays Luis Suarez had infamously clawed the ball off the line in extra time at the 2010 World Cup to stop Ghana from scoring a last-gasp winner. Ghana missed the subsequent spot-kick and penalty shootout.

Suarez, who had been booed by Ghana fans during the warm-up claimed two assists shortly after. De Arrascaeta headed the ball over the line from close range after a shot from Suarez in the 26th minute and doubled their lead with a superb volley six minutes later.

Uruguay later had a penalty claim turned down by VAR after Darwin Nunez tangled with Daniel Amartey in the box. Uruguay continued to dominate the game with Facundo Pellistri missing a good chance in the 65th minute.

In the final stages, news of South Koreas lead had reached Uruguay’s bench and Suarez who had been taken off was seen in tears.

Portugal topped the group with seven points, followed by South Korea and Uruguay with four, and Ghana with three.
