Blaming Melo only is cheap. Check the replay more than once please. When a goalkeeper comes out then he has to hit the ball even if it costs a team player's life.
Your goalkeeper wasn't good either in that situation. His physical contact is one of the reasons, Melo couldn't head it right either
you can clearly see here how the keeper is moving melo's head by touching him. If the keeper doesn't come out then Melo (note: he's standing all alone, why does GK have to come over there?) heads it right

I don't care too much about the goal. The problem was the stupid expulsion.
Yeah that's my problem with Melo too, I don't blame him for the goal; that was the keeper's fault, he should've called for the ball.
COME ON GHANA!!!! I hope they don't just defend in the second half but play they're football.
holy crap... I wanted to see brazil win this game but after what we saw I can't say I feel sorry for them. The game was horrible to watch from the first minute until the last... brazil played like a spoiled brat, the second things did not go their way, the second they lost the advantage their entire gameplay fell appart like a card castle in a tornado. It was outright painful to watch. Can't really say a single good thing about brazil.... Congrats to holland though.
Man, if you guys are bored with the game of Uruguay vs Ghana,
You have to watch the new Nike commercial, is just incredible, amazing..
Man the end of the extra time was really entertaining
I can't believe Gyan missed!!! They had the chance to avoid all the stress of the shoot-outs, I woulda bet on him to score. Hmmph penalties
An all-out war of insane players...I can't really find other words now
Brazil was sent home but Uruguay has passed to the next round. yay!!!!
I’m sad for Ghana; they played well and gave their all. There was more than one chance where Ghana had the opportunity to score the second goal against Uruguay.
I'm so happy that Uruguay won, yes even if they won during penalties.
Now go Argentina and Paraguay!!! I hope they win their respective games as well.

The last minutes were amazing!That's what makes football!
This is why football is the greatest sport.
Suarez is myth, hahahahaha!
Yeah, we can't deny it.
The second half for Brazil was ridiculous like I've never seen in my life.
We totally gave up after the first goal. And we had no options to make substitutions.
And, my god, Sneijder scored using his head... that "midget"! Absurd! He didn't even jump.
Holland got their revenge after all.
I want to cheer for Argentina now, but if they win this cup with Maradona as a coach... I don't know if brazilians(myself include) can stand it.
It will become a legend.
it's Argentina's time. ()
Des-chan, you summed it up pretty well anyway.
I'm devastated that Ghana lost in the end. I really wanted them to go through to the semi's. Gyan had the golden opportunity to close the curtain on Uruguay's WC campaign and make Africa even prouder of Ghana but "it wasn't meant to be" I guess.
