With even opportunities for progressing to the Last-16 stage, Ghana and Uruguay will collide in the Group H fixture on Friday. The African nation sits in second place and needs one more victory, and its South American rival, sitting right behind them, has similar ideas.

The Black Stars displayed a quality performance despite losing their opening game to relatively tough Portugal by 3-2, though that was an impressive and livelier show for both teams. However, in the next match, Ghana recorded a 3-2 against South Korea, enlightening their slight chances of making it through knockouts.

In contrast, the Quarter-Finalists of the 2018 World Cup and record holder of not being knocked out of a World Cup in the group stage since 2002, Uruguay, has badly failed to showcase good football. The South American nation ended a goalless opening match against South Korea and then lost to Portugal by 2-0, now resting in last place with max-chances of elimination.

Ghana will probably see this game as an opportunity to exact justice after losing to Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup Quarterfinals after being outmatched on Plenty Shoots. Uruguay wants to make history again, but this time by scoring goals rather than prevailing on shootouts.

Ghana possible starting lineup:

Ati-Zigi; Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah; Partey, Samed; Kudus, A Ayew, J Ayew; Williams

Uruguay possible starting lineup:

Rochet; Gimenez, Godin, Coates; Varela, Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, Olivera; Nunez, Gomez
