After 12 years since the FIFA World Cup 2010, held in South Africa, Uruguay and Ghana will square off again. When Ghanaian Dominic Adiyiah’s effort was blocked by Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez using their hand, the game ended in controversy.
Later, the referee showed him the red card and awarded Ghana a penalty. However, the penalty taker Asamoah Gyan could not score in the game’s final essential minutes, and a tie resulted.
Ghana would become the first African nation to reach the World Cup semifinals if he converted the penalty kick on that particular day. The score was tied at 1-1, forcing a sudden-death penalty shootout to determine the winner. Unfortunately, Ghana was eliminated with a score of 4-2, failing to score in the penalty shootouts.
Ghanaians feel that if Suarez hadn’t made that questionable move on that particular day, the score would have been 2-1, and Ghana would have advanced to the semifinals. Suarez received a lot of vitriol and insults from Ghanaian fans following the game. Some of them even refer to them as their sworn enemy or cheaters.
Ghana and Uruguay were upset by Ronaldo’s Portugal during the World Cup in Qatar, and the two teams will play again on December 2. Due to the two teams’ contentious 2010 histories, every football fan is anticipating a heated match between them.
Ghanaian football supporters highlighted that they sought retribution against Suarez and Uruguay because they had been humiliated in qualifying. Ghana was sure to be ready to exact revenge, tie the game up, and send Uruguay packing by defeating them.
Uruguay is in a life-or-death position as they have already dropped two games and are still without a goal. “There is no question that our goal against Ghana is victory. If adjustments are necessary, we will make them. “Uruguay is in last place in Group H with one point after losing to Portugal 2-0 on Monday, according to coach Diego Alonso.
