Ghana 1-1 Uruguay
The black stars presented the ticket of the semi finals ticket on a golden plate. After a strong match and two extra timings, Ghana lost to Uruguay from penalty kicks. The shocking part of the game is the last minute of the second extra time, after Gyan Asamoah wasted a penalty shot that could have ended the game without going to the lucky shots. The irony of the situation was when Suarez, the Uruguay striker, played a hand ball that prevented a goal and gave a penalty kick to the Ghanian side. Ghana scored first by Muntari in the 45th min. and Uruguay went back to score in the 55th min by Diego Forlan. Ghana wasted dozens of chances to score which in the end had to pay for these chances. Uruguay and Netherlands will play in the next round to set a side in the African Final.
