Ghana are out for “revenge” after being drawn with Uruguay in the group stages of the 2022 World Cup.

The meeting between Ghana and Uruguay in Group H will be a repeat of the 2010 World Cup quarterfinal.

Ghana were eliminated by Uruguay on penalties in South Africa, having seen Asamoah Gyan miss an extra-time spot-kick after Luis Suarez was sent off for handball.

“We believe that it will be revenge time,” Ghana FA president Kurt Okraku told BBC Sport Africa.

“We thought we had clearly won that particular game but for that save from Suarez. It is very interesting for us to pitch against them again, obviously with fond memories [this time].

“It is important that we all set the record straight.”

The FIFA World Cup takes place between 21 November and 18 December.

Only three African sides have ever progressed to the quarter-finals; Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010.
