Uruguay-Ghana shootout

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — How the penalty kicks shootout between Uruguay and Ghana played out in the World Cup's quarterfinals Friday:

1-0 Uruguay: Diego Forlan, who scored the Celeste's goal in regulation, puts a hard right-footed shot into the right corner of the net.

1-1 Ghana: Asamoah Gyan, who missed a penalty kick by hitting the crossbar on the final play of extra time, sends a right-footed drive high into the right corner.

2-1 Uruguay: Mauricio Victorino's high shot to the left side of the net goes in even though goalkeeper Richard Kingson guesses correctly and dives to that side.

2-2 Ghana: Fernando Muslera also guesses correctly, but fails to stop Stephen Appiah's right-footed shot to the left side.

3-2 Uruguay: Andres Scotti sends his shot down the middle, and Kingson barely misses getting his foot on it despite diving the wrong way.

3-2 Ghana: Muslera dives right and John Mensah's low kick goes right into him.

3-2 Uruguay: Maximiliano Pereira hits his drive far over the net.

3-2 Ghana: Dominic Adiyiah sends a low shot to the right, where Muslera has dived, and he makes another easy save.
