These teams met in the quarter-final at the 2010 FIFA World Cup at Soccer City. They played to a 1-1 draw after Luis Suárez was red-carded for a deliberate handball and Asamoah Gyan missed the subsequent penalty. Will we have that kind of drama again this afternoon?

Good afternoon and welcome to the Al Janoub Stadium for our coverage of this FIFA World Cup Group H clash between Ghana and. Uruguay.
1'
Kick-off! We are underway here in Al Wakrah and Uruguay get us going.
2'
An early stoppage and Gimenez is nursing an early calf issue. He continues after some attention.
3'
Ghana normally like to play at a fast tempo but at this stage both teams are still settling in.
5'
Nunez may have been held down on the edge of the box but he is down FAR TOO EASILY! No foul!
8'
Jordan Ayew with a good run down the left for Ghana. He loses the ball but then Kudus is fouled for a Ghana free-kick that amounts to nothing.
9'
There has been little spark from Uruguay thus far. They have also not scored at this World Cup as yet!
10'
A ball meant for Nunez just has too much on it and he cannot control the ball to keep it in play.
12'
Just a little bit too much aggression by Seidu and he hands Uruguay a free-kick near halfway.
14'
Nunez gets a yard in on Seidu but he fails to control the ball on the edge of the box. CLOSE!
16'
PROMISING for Ghana and a nervous time for Uruguay. A lovely pass form Williams finds Jordan Ayew, who shoots. The keeper does not take it cleanly and it rebounds into the path of Kudus, who is OFFSIDE!
18'
VAR rules that the keeper took Kudus out and it's a PENALTY TO GHANA! Kudus took a nice dive but VAR RULES! YELLOW CARD, URUGUAY, NUNEZ! Meanwhile Nunez is booked for back-chatting. When will he learn?
20'
PENALTY SAVED BY ROCHET! Andre Ayew is too casual and it's an easy stop for Rochet, who picks the right side!
23'
CLOSE FOR NUNEZ! who is into space and beats the keeper but then SALISU CLEARS IT OFF THE LINE! WOW that was going in!
26'
GOAL, URUGUAY, DE ARRASCAETA! 0-1: De Arrascaeta with the breakthrough and also with the first Uruguay goal at this tournament!
28'
That goal was started by Nunez, who crossed it to Suarez after a lapse by the Ghana defence. His shot is SAVED but into the path of De Arrascaeta, who SCORES!
30'
Suarez is down and in need of attention!
32'
GOAL, URUGUAY, DE ARRASCAETA! 0-2: De Arrascaeta with his second goal from CLOSE-RANGE after a brilliant flick into the box from Suarez, who will claim the assist! That was a SHARP FINISH and they are TWO UP!
34'
Ghana now faces a monumenrtal task to turn this around. Even worse when we take into account the penalty miss of Ayew.
36'
SUBSTITUTION: Bentancur has picked up an injury and cannot continue. Uruguay bring on Vecino to replace him.
38'
Kudus into a gap for Ghana on a half-turn and he earns a corner after a deflection following his shot!
40'
Ghana with a free-kick near halfway after a Suarez foul. Lot's of back-chatting again and Suarez must watch himself.
42'
Kudus does well to gain ground on the right. After some argy-bargy Suarez and Seidu are both down and in need of attention.
44'
Uruguay in full control of the ball now and they secure a decent free-kick after a Partey foul.
45'
+8: HALF-TIME: GHANA 0-2 URUGUAY. Ghana have it all to do after the break following the two De Arrascaeta goals as well as the Ayew penalty miss. Can they regroup when they come back?

45'

WIDE! An early attack by Ghana and Kudus cannot get a touch but the flag is up anyway.
48'
SUBSTITUTION: A change at the break for Ghana. The Ayew brothers are off and on come Sulemana and Bukari.
50'
The control is now with Ghana in the opening minutes of this half. Can the Africans pull one back?
52'
The two changes made at the break by Ghana have certainly made an early impact.
54'
Ghana in a decent attacking position before they are halted after a handball by Abdul Samed.
56'

57'

59'

61'
YELLOW CARD, URUGUAY, SUAREZ! 0-2: Suarez in the book now after kicking the ball away stupidly. He should know better.

75'
More pressure from Ghana to secure another corner. Can they break down the Uruguay defence?
77'
The Africans will have to come up with something if they want to progress to the round of 16.
80'
A lucky break for Ghana but Semenyo fails to trouble the keeper. It's WIDE! That was a chance to create DRAMA!
82'
SUBSTITUTION: Nunez and De Arrascaeta come off for Uruguay.
83'
WHAT A SAVE by an off-balance Rochet! after a shot by Kudus! Brilliant! That had a goal written all over it.
85'
South Korea have taken the lead against Portugal and move into second place. That means Uruguay go home unless they score another goal!
87'
YELLOW CARD, URUGUAY, COATES! 0-2: Coates in the book after a cynical foul. Suarez's face tells the story as he just saw the news!
