How to watch Ghana vs Uruguay online and on TV today

All eyes will be on Luis Suarez whether he starts or comes off the bench for Uruguay, as they face Ghana in a must-win game for the South Americans at the World Cup.

The striker’s handball – and Ghana’s subsequent missed penalty – was one of the biggest talking points of the tournament last time they met in 2010 and the ill-feeling remains for many supporters of the African nation.

This time around though Ghana simply have to avoid defeat to stand a huge chance of making the knockouts, while a win will guarantee it.

Uruguay must win and hope South Korea do not beat Portugal – if they do, it goes to goal difference which Uruguay currently trail in by one.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

What is the team news?

There is a full squad available for Ghana, so the most likely scenario is an unchanged line-up from their last game. Pushing Mohammed Kudus further upfield was an important tactical switch for that game and he will again be key in supporting striker Inaki Williams.

Uruguay have played both a back three and back four so far but look better-balanced in the 3-5-2. Edinson Cavani may get the nod in attack over Luis Suarez again, especially given the furore around the former Liverpool and Barcelona man in this specific fixture. Centre-back Ronald Araujo is still out injured.

Predicted lineups

GHA – Zigi, Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah, Partey, Samed, Kudus, A Ayew, J Ayew, Williams

URU – Rochet, Gimenez, Godin, Coates, Varela, Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, Oliveira, Cavani, Nunez


Ghana 4/1

Draw 29/10

Uruguay 4/5


No repeat of the acrimonious meeting last time and no fairytale comeback for the South Americans, who have been well below par. They might not lose but it won’t be enough. Ghana 2-2 Uruguay.
