Uruguay players lose their heads as they ambush match officials after the final whistle

Uruguay players lose their heads as they ambush match officials after the final whistle

Uruguay thought they should've been awarded a penalty in stoppage time.

Several Uruguay players lost their heads after the final whistle following their crushing World Cup elimination.

Uruguay beat Ghana 2-0 in their final group stage game, but the result wasn't enough to book a spot in the last 16.

That's because South Korea beat Portugal 2-1 in the other Group H match, meaning the Asian country advance to the next round of the tournament ahead of their South American counterparts on goals scored.

Though there was an agonising wait for the South Korea team as their game finished before Ghana vs. Uruguay.

Pushing for another goal, Uruguay thought they should have been awarded a penalty when Edinson Cavani was brought down in stoppage time.

But Daniel Siebert waved away Uruguay's calls for a penalty. BBC Sport pundits Alan Shearer, RIo Ferdinand and Mauricio Pochettino were all surprised that a penalty wasn't given.

His decision to not award a penalty angered the Uruguay team as they vented their anger at the German referee and his team following the final whistle.

Uruguay players ambushed the officials, angrily remonstrating with back-up goalkeeper Fernando Muslera appearing to shove the linesman in shocking scenes.

Cavani was shown a yellow card for his protestations as Uruguay are knocked out of the World Cup.

Luis Suarez didn't take the World Cup elimination well as he was reduced to tears on the bench.

He cut a distraught figure following South Korea's winner against Portugal.
