    I was just about to say this is a much closer match than I expected, then Ghana took advantage of lax defending and it's 1-nil.

    Muntari with the goal before the half. Have to wonder what Muselera was doing, other than chillin' like there was nothing going on. Perhaps he was trying to find Nadir Behadj in the crowd so he could greet his new teammate.

    ^ lmao

    GO GHANA!!!! or shall we say BAGHANA BAGHANA!!! haha

    What a match though, at least for me 10x better than brasil - holland, lot of attacking, no ugly fouls, and the crowd is into it. (plus perfect pitch to play in)

    What a strike, brilliant.

    In the background of the British commentator I can hear the Uruguayan commentators SCREAMING.

    Uruguay are through, man what a match.

    I hope they replay it again for those that missed it. Hats off to Uruguay :)

    Suarez will miss next match vs. Holland, not good news for them.

    First the beating they put on South Africa on Youth Day (and post match celebration like it was 1930) and now this...is there a less popular team in South Africa right now than Uruguay?

    "It was worth it to be sent off in this way. It was complicated and tough. We suffered to the end but the hand of God, it's mine now." - Luis Suárez

    Got to love Luis Suárez.

    Also, you'd be surprised that Uruguay are actually quite popular.

    They're popular in the area they're staying in. How about the rest of the country?

    There have been a few great goals this World Cup. Some other standouts are that goal by Suárez in the rain against South Korea to take his team to the quarters and Klose's toe poke.
