2022 World Cup: Talking Points – Ghana Set Up Mouth-watering Uruguay Grudge Match
A spot in the knockout stages will be on the line for Ghana when they take on Uruguay in their final FIFA World Cup 2022 Group H.
The pressure was on for Ghana ahead of kick-off, with the Black Stars knowing that defeat here would spell the end of their World Cup campaign with a game to spare.
But they responded admirably to the challenge, setting up what promises to be one of the must-watch games of the group stage when they face Uruguay next.
The memory of *that* quarter-final in 2010 is still fresh. Ghana were so close to becoming the first African side to reach the last four of the World Cup, but Luis Suarez intentionally handballed what would have been a Black Stars winner in the last minute of extra-time, before celebrating when Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty.
Uruguay then won the shoot-out to progress in what was one of the most extraordinary and heartbreaking World Cup matches of all time. Ghana could now have the chance to claim revenge by knocking out the Uruguayans.
What time does Ghana v Uruguay start?
Ghana and Uruguay will kick off at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah at 18:00 local time (Arabia Standard Time, UTC+3) on 2 December.
For Ghanaian viewers, that is 15:00 UTC.
