Kahteen ensimmäiseen matsiin joukkue ei onnistunut maalitiliä avaamaan, vaikka yläkerrasta ja keskikentältä taitavia yksilöitä löytyy. Yläkertaan on laittaa pelaajia kuten Darwin Nunez, Suarez ja Edinson Cavani – kaksi jälkimmäistä ei ole enää huippuvuosien tasolla, mutta kyllä he palloa osaa verkkoon laittaa. Ghanan alakertaa vastaan paikoille pääseminen ei pitäisi olla ongelma. Luis Suarez on the 2010 incident; I don’t need to apologize. I’d apologize if I injured a player but in this situation, I handled the ball, I take a red card and the Ghana player missed the penalty.
Both players confronted each other after the free kick and Suarez tripped the Ghanaian defender – an incident that could have been revisited by the VAR in the modern game. Referee Olegário Benquerença warned the players that similar action would see them sent off. Ghana were eager to score before the break as some crisp passing between Muntari, Kwadwo Asamoah and Boateng led to Gyan playing Ghana’s first shot on target – albeit a rather tame effort from about 30 yards. Ghana’s press was intense and they quickly won the ball back in the Uruguayan’s half. Industrious play on the wings from 20-year-old Inkoom found Boateng with a cross but the FA Cup finalist mistimed his acrobatic attempt and saw his effort sail into the stands.
So, when Africa finally landed the World Cup in 2010, all eyes were on the hosts South Africa. Connoisseurs of African football were sneaking glances at Cameroon, who were ranked 19th in the world. Hardly anyone gave Ghana a second look. The Black Stars had only qualified for their second-ever World Cup. Their first experience in 2006 inspired hope, as they miraculously qualified from a group alongside eventual winners Italy, Czech Republic and the USA – both ranked top five in the world at the time – but the fairy-tale ended with a reality check as Brazil thumped Ghana 3-0 in the round of 16. Despite an impressive outing at the World Cup in 2006, Ratomir Dujković resigned after the tournament.
2) for Ghana at the World Cup so far. Conversely, Uruguay’s defensive pillar Diego Godin was ruled out of the game due to a thigh injury, as Alvaro Fernandez replaced Alvaro Pereira in midfield. The game was expected to be closely contested, but the atmosphere in the stadium marginally tilted the odds towards Ghana even before a ball was kicked.
Ghana – Uruguay 2. 12. 2022 | Katso vetovihje & kertoimet2010 ei ole unohtunut! Ghanalla mahdollisuus maksaa kalavelkoja – kostautuuko Uruguayn tehottomuus? Perjantaina isketään lohkovaihe pakettiin ja Lohko H:ssa on varmasti kuuma kamppailu luvassa, kun Ghana kohtaa Uruguayn. Panokset on suuret sillä ainoastaan Portugali on varmistanut jatkopaikan. Ghana on kolmessa pisteessä ja Uruguay sekä Etelä-Korea yhdessä.
Prior to that World Cup, Uruguay had been through a dark period. They missed out on the 2006 World Cup after losing to Australia in the playoffs. The appointment of Tabárez changed their fortunes almost immediately, as Uruguay finished fourth in the 2007 Copa America. However, they had to go all the way in the qualifiers, which included a play-off victory over Costa Rica. Consequently, the Uruguayans went into the 2010 World Cup playing more qualifying games than any other team – 20 in total. One of the storylines of the World Cup in South Africa was the Adidas Jabulani ball, which garnered notoriety for its tendency to fizz about like a wayward firework.
Oman mausteensa tähän taistoon tuo muistot vuoden 2010 kisojen joukkueiden keskinäisestä kohtaamisesta, jolloin jatkoajan lopulla Luis Suarez esti varman maalin pelaamalla palloa kädellä. Ghana epäonnistui pilkulta ja lopulta Uruguay eteni jatkoon. Ghana on onnistunut jo paremmin mitä monet varmastikaan osasi odottaa, sillä kahteen matsiin se on onnistunut viimeistelemään peräti viisi maalia. Avausottelussa toisen jakson tykitys ei lopulta pisteille riittänyt, mutta Etelä-Koreaa vastaan Ghana nappasi voiton lukemin 3-2. Se onnistui jo kertaalleen menettämään kahden maalin johtoaseman, mutta pian Etelä-Korean tasoituksen jälkeen Mohammed Kudus iski ottelun toisella maalillaan Ghanan voittoon.
The pattern would become a familiar sight, as Ghana sought to create from the wings. Twelve years after the epic match, Inkoom reveals to The Analyst that coach Milovan slotted him into the team primarily due to his crossing ability. “Before the Uruguay game, Rajevac told me to try to cross each time because I have a good cross and Asamoah Gyan is dominant in the air.
Now a player who was almost an outcast had sent the entire African continent into raptures of ecstasy. Fifty-four African nations and their West African representatives were just 45 minutes away from history. A look at the expected goals at half time read 0. 19 for Uruguay, 0. 40 for Ghana – perhaps suggesting that the hosts had every right to start to dream. But it was still premature to start celebrating and the players knew it, as they quickly mobilised to form a circle on the pitch. The message? Keep your heads in the game. Senior players like John Paintsil, Kevin-Prince Boateng and John Mensah kept pinning both index fingers on their head.
” Prior to the Uruguay game Inkoom had made nine open play crosses for Ghana in just two games, which was only behind Andre Ayew (13) and John Pantsil (16). The game looked like it would head into the break goalless until Gyan laid off a pass to Muntari in the middle of the park. The Internazionale midfielder unleashed a powerful shot from 35 yards which swerved away from Muslera and nestled in the back of the net. For Muntari, this goal sent a pointed statement, because he would not have played at the World Cup had it not been for Nyantakyi. The GFA president in a recent interview with Joy Sports revealed he had to “kneel” in front of coach Rajevac to plead for Muntari to be included in the squad.

With the hopes of a continent resting on their shoulders, Ghana faced off against Uruguay for the first time. The game took place at Soccer City in Johannesburg, the same venue for the final of the competition. A thousand vuvuzelas created a wall of noise that spilled over the stadium walls and reverberated around the continent. For many, this was Africa’s time to shine on the global stage, and the Black Stars had demonstrated they were ready to carry the mantle. Local fans began referring to the team from West Africa as “BaGhana BaGhana, ” adapting the nickname of South Africa men’s national team – Bafana Bafana.
Rajevac’s men narrowly qualified from Group D with four points – edging Australia on goal difference. Ghana once again showed their mettle, beating the USA for a second consecutive World Cup game in a dramatic round of 16 tie. Asamoah Gyan scored one of the goals of the tournament to send Ghana one step beyond their record in Germany four years prior. Standing between Ghana and a semi-final berth would be a streetwise Uruguayan side. Unlike Ghana, Uruguay had a more consistent technical bench.
Players constantly complained and it wasn’t surprising to see Lionel Messi, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres and Wayne Rooney all end the World Cup with just one goal between them. Possibly just as surprising was how Uruguay’s Diego Forlan mastered the Jabulani and could seemingly hit it with precision from anywhere within sight of goal. Forlan and Luis Suarez played key roles as Uruguay topped Group A ahead of Mexico, hosts South Africa and France.
Ghana vs. Uruguay - Football Match Summary - ESPN
Ghana won their first corner of the game in the 30th minute with the corner count at 6-1 in favour of the Uruguayans. Muntari delivered an in-swinging delivery which saw Vorsah – a man linked with a move to Stoke City – leap above Diego Lugano only to send his header inches wide. It was the spark Ghana needed as they went on to assert themselves in the final 15 minutes of the half. Perhaps their dominance coincided with the injury of Uruguay captain Lugano, who was replaced by Andres Scotti. Ghana were on the ascendancy as illustrated in the expected goals race chart below and Gyan should have scored his fourth goal of the tournament after purposeful wing play by Kevin-Prince Boateng, but his side foot effort from around the penalty spot went just wide.
It was the first time La Celeste had topped a World Cup group since the 1954 edition in Switzerland. Suarez continued his good form, scoring a brace in the round of 16 to help Uruguay beat South Korea 2-1. The South Americans had their eye on a last four berth for the first time in 40 years, but they had to go through the last African country standing, Ghana.
