It is the last game of the group stage of this Qatar 2022 World Cup and the 16 who will advance to the round of 16 to determine who will be the champions will soon be known. One of these games will feature Uruguay and Ghana, two teams that have already met in World Cups. That last game is well remembered by both and here we tell you why.
Group H will have an exciting definition. Portugal were the first to qualify, so of the three remaining members only one will accompany CR7's team in the final phase. Of those, the best chance to do so is Ghana, who have had a great performance in this group.
They lost 3-2 to Portugal and then beat South Korea by the same result. With the victory, or even the tie (if the Koreans do not beat the Portuguese by 2 or more goals) it would reach them. Uruguay has it a little more complicated: they need to win and for South Korea not to win against Portugal.
The last Ghana vs Uruguay in a World Cup
This Friday's game was long awaited by the Ghanaians, who have very bad memories of Uruguay. The last confrontation between the two was in South Africa 2010, more precisely in the quarterfinals of that World Cup. In the 90 minutes of a very tough match, the result was 1-1 with goals from Forlan for the South Americans and Muntari for the Africans.
The game had to go to extra time, and one of the most famous events of the World Cup took place there: at the last minute, Luis Suarez stopped a ball with his hand that was going to become a goal for the Ghanaians. The Uruguayan received the red card and the penalty was sanctioned. However, Gyan missed that penalty that would have given them the victory and the semifinals; and then in the penalty definition, Uruguay won.
