Ghana vs Uruguay World Cup 2022 – Match Preview
Ghana is doing well in this year’s World Cup. They were defeated 3-2 by Portugal in the first round. Despite this, Ghana has a good chance of progressing to the next round thanks to a 3-2 win over South Korea in the second match. It will be enough for Ghana to win one point in the final round to advance to the knockout phase.
Ghana is not one of the best World Cup teams, but they are quick and know how to exploit their opponents’ weaknesses. Ghana typically plays on the counter-attack, relying on the lightning-fast Inaki Williams.
Uruguay has yet to win a game in the tournament. They drew 0-0 with South Korea and lost 2-0 to Portugal. They must win in the final round in order to advance to the next round.
Uruguay struggles to score goals. They have only scored two goals in their last four games, including friendlies.
In 2010, Ghana and Uruguay played a memorable World Cup quarterfinal in which Luis Suarez saved his team with a late penalty. Later, the Uruguayans prevailed in a penalty shootout.
Ghana has enough talent to avoid defeat against Uruguay.
Ghana Lineups, Form and Team News
Left-back Gideon Mensah was forced off late in the win over South Korea but later confirmed he was just suffering from cramp, implying he should be fit enough to play again.
Ghana Possible Lineups (4-2-3-1): Ati-Zigi; Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah; Partey, Abdul Samed; Kudus, A. Ayesw, J. Ayew; Williams
Uruguay Lineups, Form and Team News
We have yet to see centre-back Ronald Araujo, and he may not appear at all after suffering a relapse of the injury that nearly ruled him out of the competition in the first place.
Araujo isn’t expected to return until the knockout stages, but given Uruguay’s struggles thus far, he may not get the chance.
Uruguay Possible Lineups (3-5-2): Rochet; Giminez, Coates, Godin; Varela, De Arrascaeta, Valverde, Bentanur, Nunez; Suarez, Cavani
Ghana vs Uruguay Stats and H2H
Ghana’s only competition between these two countries has left a bad taste in its mouth. That memorable quarter-final match in 2010 has gone down in World Cup history. Sulley Muntari broke the deadlock with a thunderbolt on the stroke of halftime, but Diego Forlan equalized 10 minutes later.
As the game approached penalties, Dominic Adiyiah thought he had won it at the last second, only to be denied by Suarez’s hand. The forward was then sent off, and Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty kick, setting up penalties, which Uruguay won.

Group H Overview and Standings
Cristiano Ronaldo’s dream of winning his first World Cup in his final tournament remains alive and well. Portugal has officially qualified for the Round of 16 after defeating Uruguay, and all that remains to be determined is whether they will advance as group winners or runners-up.
The Portuguese are in first place in the group and will need only a draw against South Korea to secure the top spot. However, the Koreans will be focused on winning that game in order to claim the other group berth.
The Koreans, Uruguay, and Ghana will compete for the final place. The African team has the upper hand after a 3-2 victory over South Korea on the second matchday. So far, they’ve looked the best of the three, but they’ll have to finish the job on the final day.
And it looks like it will be doubly sweet for the Ghanaians because they will be able to book their place while also knocking out Uruguay. With an unsportsmanlike hand ball on the goal line that prevented the winning goal from crossing the line, Luis Suarez and La Celeste were responsible for Ghana’s cruel elimination in the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup.
Ghana vs Uruguay Prediction
The match between Ghana and Uruguay in the 2022 World Cup is one not to be missed. It will bring back bitter memories of a game that the Black Stars could have won and become the first African country to reach the World Cup semi-finals.
Uruguay has no choice but to go for it here. Only a victory will suffice, and even that may not be enough.
The South Americans may field all three of Darwin Nunez, Luis Suarez, and Edinson Cavani in the hope of clinching the victory, and that kind of firepower may be too much for a Ghana side that has yet to impress defensively.
Having said that, Jordan Ayew is in his prime as a playmaker for some reason and will look to exploit the gaps created by Uruguay’s high-octane approach. Expect goals, but Uruguay should come out on top.
