2022 World Cup: Ghana will seek revenge against Uruguay – Kurt Okraku

Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku has said the Black Stars will seek “revenge” after being drawn in the same group as Uruguay for the 2022 World Cup.

Their encounter in Group H, where the Black Stars will also face Portugal and South Korea, will be a repeat of the 2010 World Cup quarter-final.

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,” 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.

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

Striker Suarez, now 35 and at Atletico Madrid after stints with Liverpool and Barcelona, is still playing for two-time World Cup winners Uruguay, but Ghana are unlikely to have any survivors from their side from 12 years ago.
