They were able to dust themselves down and bounce back in one of the games of the tournament so far. Kudus stole the show as he scored twice in the 3-2 victory against South Korea last time out. Meanwhile, Uruguay’s hope of the knockouts hang by a thread after taking just a point in their two toothless displays so far.

Predicted line-upsGhana (4-2-3-1): Ati-Zigi, Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah; Partey, Abdul Samed; (Jordan) Ayew, Kudus, (Andre) Ayew; Williams. Uruguay (4-3-3): Rochet, Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Vecino, Bentancur, Valverde; Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez. The story so farGhana have put themselves in a great position to advance to the last 16. They were somewhat unlucky to come away empty handed from their opening clash against Portugal, especially when Inaki Williams slipped after nicking the ball from Diogo Costa.
Their first game, against South Korea, was one of the most boring of the World Cup as neither side looked particularly like scoring during the 90 minutes. It was a story of missed chances against Portugal as an early miss from Rodrigo Bentancur was punished with two goals from Bruno Fernandes, the first of which initially awarded to Cristiano Ronaldo. Uruguay were widely fancied to progress from Group H but they’re staring elimination in the face (Photo: Michael Steele/Getty Images)Players carrying yellow cardsGhana: Mohammed Kudus, Andre Ayew, Alidu Seidu, Inaki Williams, Daniel Amartey, Tariq Lamptey. Uruguay: Martin Caceres, Rodrigo Bentancur, Mathias Olivera. What’s at stake? A place in the last 16. A win will definitely see Ghana into the knockouts while a draw will be enough if South Korea are unable to beat Portugal.
In the US, FS1 and Universo will be showing the match and kick off is at 10am EST and 7am PT. Ghana works on the same time zone as the UK so supporters hoping to watch them in their home nation will have to tune in at 3pm while it will be a 12pm kick off in Uruguay. Team newsGhana have come through their first two games of the tournament unscathed and been really impressive in a tough group. Mohammed Kudus turned in a match-winning performance against South Korea so Otto Addo’s team will be built around the Ajax star once again. There are still a couple of big decisions for him to make.
Uruguay will also be hoping that South Korea don’t win as their main progression hopes rest on Portugal getting a result in the other game. There is a way they can qualify with win if South Korea also win but they would have to overturn the goal difference deficit. PredictionUruguay to beat Ghana. Ghana to win: 18%. Uruguay to win: 58%.

Ghana vs Uruguay preview: Analysis, team news and moreRedemption is on line for Ghana when they meet Luis Suarez and Uruguay in a Group H decider, 12 years on from when he denied them the chance to become the only African nation to reach the World Cup semi-final. The match will be played at the Al-Janoub Stadium in Al-Wakrah on Friday, December 2. Daniel Siebert has been appointed to referee the game. It will be the German’s second game of the tournament after he was in charge of Australia’s narrow Group D win against Tunisia. What time is Ghana vs Uruguay? The match kicks off at 6pm local time which means it will start at 3pm in the UK and the coverage will be shown on the BBC.
Do both Ayew brothers retain their places? Does Baba Rahman come back into the team at left-back? Given the result last time out, it seems wise to expect an unchanged starting XI for this one. Uruguay have been similarly lucky in terms of injuries but that doesn’t make it easy for Diego Alonso to pick his team. His side have been poor in their opening two matches with both Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani failing to impress when leading the frontline. Suarez was the man put in front of the world’s media ahead of this one so it would be wise to expect him to start with Darwin Nunez. Ronald Araujo — who was a major doubt going into the World Cup — is unlikely to be available here.
