Ghana need a win to make sure of a place in the knockout phase, although a draw would be enough if Portugal avoid defeat by South Korea.
Anything less than a win would see Uruguay crash out, and even a victory might not be enough if South Korea beat Portugal – in which case their fate would be decided by goal difference.
This was always going to a grudge match after Luis Suarez’s infamous handball 12 years ago, but the stakes are now even higher.

Kick-off and channel
Ghana vs Uruguay kick-off is at 3pm GMT on Friday 2 December in the UK. The game is free to watch on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
In the US, kick-off time is 10am ET / 8am PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for the World Cup 2022, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the World Cup 2022, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
