While it may not have been Ghana's day, they seemed to have taken consolation from the fact that Luis Suarez has also left the tournament.

In a game with a lot of history, Ghana took on Uruguay in today's vital game, with a win for Ghana guaranteeing them a spot in the last 16, while Uruguay knew they had to win and hope Portugal could prevent South Korea from victory.

In a fiery first half, it looked as though Ghana would take the lead when they were awarded a penalty after a lengthy VAR review when Sergio Rocket brought down Mohammed Kudus, but Andre Ayew's poor attempt was easily saved by the Uruguay goalkeeper.

Ghana were made to pay as Uruguay scored two goals in six minutes through a double from Giorgian De Arrascaeta to give them a two goal lead at half-time.

While both sides pushed on for the goals they needed to advance to the last 16, it remained 2-0 as Ghana's tournament came to an end in the group stages.

While it was an extremely disappointing performance from the African side, Ghana fans took some consolation from the fact that it also meant the end of Luis Suarez's tournament. A 91st minute goal from South Korea gave them a shock 2-1 over Portugal and sent them through in dramatic scenes.

Suarez was visibly upset when he found out South Korea scored late on and couldn't hide his emotions when the full-time whistle blew. Had it been any other side, Ghana fans would have maybe had some level of sympathy, especially for a player of Suarez's talents.

However, since his handball in the 2010 World Cup quarter-final that prevented Ghana from scoring in the last moments, which Suarez was sent off for, he is understandably not a popular figure among Ghana fans.

Despite their team also exiting the competition, Ghana fans leaving the stadium were delighted that Suarez last World Cup came to an end against their side.

"I am very happy that Suarez is going home, even though the score is 2-0. I'm happy he is not going anywhere, he is going back to Uruguay.

If they took their chances, Uruguay would have gone through, but the Gods of football sent out Uruguay just because of what Suarez did. He doesn't owe us any apology, but today, we, FIFA, or the officials owe him no apology."

Safe to say that Ghana fans haven't ;et this incident go.
