Uruguay 1(4), Ghana 1(2)

World Cup quarterfinals (July 2)

Uruguay star striker Luis Suarez was a hero of sorts as he ended up saving his team from a defeat at the end of extra time with a blatant and deliberate handball on the goal line. The heartbreak for Ghana commenced as Asamoah Gyan missed the ensuing penalty shot; he welled up after his shot bounced high off the crossbar. In penalty kicks, Sebastian Abreu scored the game-winner for Uruguay, which advanced to the semifinals for the first time in 40 years.
