In the third round of the World Cup group stage, Uruguay played against Ghana in stoppage time. Uruguayan striker Cavani was brought down in the penalty area of Ghana. The referee Daniel Siebert did not make a penalty kick and refused to watch the VAR replay.
Although they eventually won 2-0, Uruguay failed to qualify due to a goal difference disadvantage (if Uruguay gets this penalty and the penalty is scored, the team will qualify for the group stage).
After the game, Uruguayan players who believed they had been unfairly punished angrily surrounded Siebert and had physical contact.
