Grief for Ghana. Euphoria for Uruguary in the FIFA World Cup quarter final match

In Johannesburg this evening Ghana came so close to securing a semi-final place in the FIFA World Cup. Uruguay eventually won 4-2 on penalties in a very tense shoot out.  In the closing minutes of extra time Ghana were awarded a penalty when Suarez handled the ball on the goal line and received the red card.  The penalty was missed. The Uruguayians were breathing a sigh of relief and went through by virtue of their penalty shoot out performance after Ghana missed two penalties. Uruguay missed one penalty in the best of five penalties.  It was a sad day for the African team who had so many supporters and admirers.  The cruel method of deciding the result ended in tears of grief in Ghana but euphoria in Uruguay. Diego Forlan was the man of the match. He was outstanding and has had a brilliant World Cup scoring goals.

Dunga has been dumped for his failure to take Brazil to success. They went out early. Was his performance that bad, really dung, or were his players to blame for not achieving much at these World Cup finals in South Africa???
