Ghana vs Uruguay live streaming: As part of Group H, Ghana will face Uruguay on Friday knowing that a win will secure a place alongside Portugal in the knockout round.
A win by The Black Stars will put them in the last-16 stage of the tournament in Qatar, where they face Uruguay on Sunday. The Black Stars currently sit second in the group, two points ahead of the fourth-placed team. Following the extraordinary World Cup quarterfinal battle between Ghana and Uruguay, Ghana hopes to avenge the loss.
After 120 minutes of football, the two teams were at 1-1 and needed a penalty shootout to decide who would advance to the final four; however, there was a huge controversy late on, with Luis Suarez receiving a red card for handling on the line in the final seconds of the match; with Uruguay reaching the final four for the first time since 1970, Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting spot kick, which sent the contest to penalties.
With Ghana currently ranked second in Group H, it is possible for them to eliminate Uruguay from the 2022 competition. Ghana has recorded three points from its opening two matches at the tournament, losing to Portugal 3-2 in the opener before beating South Korea 3-2.

In the event South Korea do not beat Portugal, who are already through, a win would send Otto Addo’s side into the knockout round. The final standings in Group A would depend on goal difference should South Korea defeat Fernando Santos’s side.
Having lost out in the group stage in 2014 before not qualifying for the finals four years ago in Russia, Ghana know their job, and a run to the knockout round for the first time since 2010, would be something special.
With a 0-0 draw against South Korea on November 24 and a 2-0 loss to Portugal on Monday, Uruguay has failed to impress at the 2022 tournament, leaving them bottom of Group H.
The only way for Diego Alonso’s side to progress is if they win this match. If they lose or draw, they are sure to be eliminated. South Korea would advance with a three-point lead if Portugal does not defeat South Korea, but if both teams win, second place in the group will be determined by goal differential.
The legendary Uruguayans, who were World Cup champions in 1930 and 1950, certainly know what it takes to progress deep into the event, having finished fourth at the 2010 competition and reaching the round of 16 in both 2014 and 2018.
South American nations haven’t actually lost in the group stage of a World Cup since 2002, the first time in their history, so to fall at the first hurdle would be surprising.
They haven’t had any luck in their first two games at the 2022 competition, so they will face a Ghanaian side looking for revenge after a infamous 2010 game.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Ghana’s starting XI repeat their performance against South Korea after no injury concerns were reported.
Having scored twice last time out, Mohammed Kudus has attracted the attention of Barcelona and Liverpool due to his outstanding form.
Among the three behind the centre-forward, Inaki Williams is set to lead again, while Jordan Ayew and Andre Ayew will continue in their attacking roles.
Likewise, Salis Abdul Samed is likely to join Thomas Partey in midfield. Despite their good performances at this summer’s tournament, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani may start the match on the bench.
A potential attacking partnership between Darwin Nunez and Maxi Gomez may be possible, along with Suarez and Cavani, who impressed off the bench against Portugal.
It is highly unlikely that Alonso will shuffle his pack, with Federico Valverde, Rodrigo Bentancur and Jose Gimenez once again certain starters.
The fitness of Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo has been a topic of discussion since the start of the tournament, and he will likely be omitted from the squad again this week.
