Portugal top the list of Group H (H) and have secured early qualification after the last round of competition.
While the Ghana team is in second place in the standings with 3 points, two points ahead of South Korea and Uruguay, who are in third and fourth place respectively.
It is noteworthy that Uruguayan star player Luis Suarez played a decisive role in depriving Ghana of the “golden square” of the World Cup in South Africa 2010 when he deliberately removed the ball heading for the net with his hand, was removed from the match, and the referee awarded Ghana a penalty two minutes before end of extra time.
Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan moved forward to take the kick and it all seemed to be over, but his ball hit the crossbar and went out, so Suarez ran off the field, celebrating his way to the dressing rooms in a frenzy.
Both teams then resorted to penalties that smiled at Uruguay and reached the golden square for the first time since 1970 while Africa is still waiting for one of its teams to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.
