The Black Stars of Ghana have crashed out of the World Cup after losing to Uruguay in their final group game on Friday.
Ghana who kicked off their campaign with a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Portugal and going on to seal a 3-2 win over South Korea in game two, fell to a 2-0 loss to Uruguay.
Despite victory for the South Americans, they join the Black Stars to exit from the World Cup after being behind on goals scored.
In the other game of the group, South Korea came from behind to beat Portugal 2-1, beating Uruguay to the second qualifying spot.
Portugal finish as winners of group H, and will now face the runners-up of the group G, while South Korea will take on winners of Group G.
In group G ties later on Friday night, group leaders Brazil will face Cameroon while Serbia will battle Switzerland.
