In the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Ghana will face Uruguay in a rematch of the 2010 quarterfinals.
In Group H, the Black Stars will face previous European champions Portugal and South Korea.
The Black Stars will seek vengeance on the South Americans after the misery of 2010.
After Luis Suarez denied Ghana a winning goal in extra time by blocking Dominic Adiyiah’s goal-bound header with his hand, Asamoah Gyan missed the subsequent penalty. In a dramatic last-eight match in South Africa, Uruguay defeated the Black Stars on penalties after he was sent off.
In Qatar, Ghana will face Portugal first.
Both teams met in 2014, with the Europeans winning 2-1 thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s game-winning goal. In a World Cup match, Ghana and South Korea have never met.
They did, however, play a friendly match before to the 2014 World Cup. The Black Stars triumphed 4-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Jordan Ayew. In their World Cup Group B matches, England will face the United States, Iran, and one of Ukraine, Scotland, or Wales.
Canada will celebrate qualification in Group F, which includes Croatia and one of the tournament favourites, Belgium, with Morocco rounding out the group. Qatar, the hosts, may have a slim chance of qualifying.
While little is expected of them against the Netherlands, they could surprise Ecuador and Senegal in Group A in Louis van Gaal’s final tournament as manager.
Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, will be favourites to qualify from Group D, which includes Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland, with Robert Lewandowski likely to be another iconic striker in his final international competition.
There are also final names to be picked for Group D, as France coach Didier Deschamps looks to rebound from a poor Euro 2020 performance against Denmark and Tunisia, with UAE, Australia, and Peru still vying for the final spot in the group.
Spain and Germany will face a stiff battle in Group E, which also includes Japan and one of Costa Rica and New Zealand.
Cameroon, Serbia, and Switzerland are all possible banana skins for a Brazil team looking to reassert themselves on the international arena in Group G.
Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, faces a tough task in Group H, with South Korea, Uruguay, and Ghana filling the remaining three positions.
