Ghana vs Uruguay LIVE: World Cup 2022 latest score, goals and updates from Qatar – Uruguay lead after Andre Ayew penalty miss

Germany crash out of World Cup despite 4-2 defeat of Costa Rica

Ghana play Uruguay in the World Cup Group H decider at Al Janoub Stadium.

The Black Stars are seeking “revenge” and labelled Luis Suarez as the “devil” after conceding a penalty for handling in the penalty area during their quarter-final at the 2010 World Cup, only for Asamoah Gyan to miss the spot-kick and the South Americans to advance on penalties.

But Suarez maintains a desire for revenge can be “counter-productive” with his country desperate to win after defeat to Portugal, while Otto Addo’s side are buoyed by a thrilling win over South Korea.

Mohammed Kudus could be the hero for the Africans after his brace last time out and Ghana will likely only need a draw to advance to the last 16.

South Korea vs Portugal

And there’s been a goal in the other game. South Korea level at 1-1 thanks to a goal by Kim Young-gwon. That doesn’t change things in the group just yet.

GOAL! Ghana 0-1 Uruguay (De Arrascaeta 26’)

And Uruguay break the deadlock!

Ghana lose the ball in midfield, a cross into the box evades two defenders and comes through to Suarez. He cuts inside and shoots at goal, Ati-Zigi stops it but it’s a weak save, the ball bobbles past his arm and De Arrascaeta is there at the back post to nod into an empty net.

Poor defending and goalkeeping by Ghana but Uruguay going through as it stands.

OFF THE LINE! Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

22 mins: Immediate drama at the other end. Seidu caught on the ball by De Arrascaeta who slides through Nunez one on one. Ati-Zigi off his line, Nunez dinks the ball over him and it’s goalbound but Salisu is brilliantly back to clear it OFF THE LINE.

Incredible defending and Ghana survive

Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

21 mins: That’s the fifth missed penalty at this World Cup. Nightmare for Ayew but it was a weak strike

MISSED PENALTY! Ghana 0-0 Uruguay (A Ayew 20’)

The Ghanaians form a protective shield around the penalty spot to stop any Uruguayan players scuffing it up ahead of the kick being taken but there’s still some nonsense and Nunez gets a yellow card.

Andre Ayew to take the penalty. A long wait, stuttered run-up and it’s SAVED! Low to Rochet’s left but comfortably saved. Poor penalty.

PENALTY! Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

16 mins: A bit of life in the Ghana attack. A lovely turn by Kudus in the middle of the park sets it up and Jordan Ayew cuts across the edge of the area before shooting on target. It’s saved but spilled by Rochet and he scrambles to his feet as Kudus comes in on the follow-up. The goalkeeper dives at the feet of Kudus and he goes down.

Initially offside is given for Andre Ayew in the build-up but VAR is now checking. Could this be penalty… IT IS!

Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

13 mins: Good work by Bentancur to intercept Partey’s pass in the middle of the park in a battle of north London-based players. Ghana goalkeeper Ati-Zigi safely claims the resultant cross though.

Uruguay quickly back on the attack and it looks like Nunez is through on goal from a simple flick-on but good scramble defence sees Seidu flick the ball away

Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

11 mins: A cagey opening to this game. A couple of heavy challenges to keep things interesting but some sloppy passing has cut short attacks for both teams. Uruguay have had more of the ball so far though.

South Korea vs Portugal update

An update from the other game in the group. Ricardo Horta has put Portugal into an early 1-0 lead over South Korea. That’s good news for both these team – would mean that a draw for Ghana or win for Uruguay would definitely send them through in second spot.

Ghana 0-0 Uruguay

8 mins: Kudus fouled about 35 yards from goal on the left but the free-kick routine is comfortably cleared by the Uruguay defence
