Suarez masterminds another Ghana downfall

Uruguay crashed out of the World Cup on Friday, despite beating Ghana 2-0, after South Korea scored a late winner in the other Group H match to leapfrog the South American side.

Giorgian De Arrascaeta netted twice in quick succession in the first half, with 35-year-old Luis Suarez having a hand in both goals.

However, Suarez finished the match on the bench in tears as the news came in of the Tigers of Asia's last-gasp victory over the Selecao, which meant the Asian side had moved above the Uruguayans into second place in Group H on goals scored.

Lamptey expresses gratitude to Ghanaians

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghana defender Tariq Lamptey has expressed gratitude to fans of the Black Stars, for their overwhelming support of the team at the World Cup in Qatar.

The West Africans exited the tournament at the group stage after a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Uruguay on Friday.

However, Lamptey believes the team will build from the disappointment of Qatar and come back stronger in the future.
