Cruel exit for the Blackstars; Africa's last team standing!

Ghana's Asamoah Gyan is hidden by celebrating teammates after he scored their side's second goal.

The Black Stars came as close as a team could come to doing what no other African nation has ever done. But they will not be going to the semifinals of the biggest tournament in the world’s most popular sport.

Star striker Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty kick at the tail end of the second extra time period and Ghana lost on penalty kicks.

This was a real painful exit believe me, just a little mistake can cost a lot.

Match Facts:
Ghana could not convert key penalties - in the last minute of extra time or in the penalty shootout - to win the Ghana vs Uruguay game. Uruguay's La Celeste advances to the semifinal with the Netherlands.

Ghana tried their very best and am so proud of them even when they lost, I guess it was their time to go, I got nothing but love for them , Uruguay was lucky time, am hoping Argentina wins at the end...Football is truly anyones game, you never know who would win the match.
