Giorgian De Arrascaeta scored twice for Uruguay against Ghana to become La Celeste’s first goalscorer in the FIFA World Cup 2022.
The 28-year-old gave Uruguay its opening goal in Qatar 2022 in the 26th minute, when he started a counter attack from the midfield, passing it to Facundo Pellistri, who moves it to Luis Suarez. Suarez’s shot was saved and De Arrascaeta hit on the follow-up to score and take Uruguay to second in the Group H table.
Six minutes later, he doubled the lead from a Suarez assist, giving Uruguay an edge on its chances to make it to the round of 16.
