Gyan advises Ghana players to concentrate on game strategies since Ghanaians feel retaliated against for Suarez’s incident, which cost them a chance to advance to the semifinals.

Asamoah Gyan, a former captain of the Ghanaian national team, has warned the Black Stars to keep revenge out of their minds and focus on the game plan while playing against Uruguay at Al-Janoub Stadium, Al-Wakrah.

In the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Ghana suffered an upsetting quarterfinal penalty shoot-out, and Uruguay’s Luis Suarez handled the ball on the line. Suarez has been Ghana’s top enemy, and the rivalry will continue when Ghana faces Uruguay today at 15 GMT in a Group H clash.  

Ghanaians have been waiting to take revenge for the past 12 years, and they will get an opportunity in today’s encounter against Uruguay at Al-Janoub Stadium, Al-Wakrah. 


With regards to this, many fans have posted about this match, saying the match is more about Ghana vs. Luis Suarez than Ghana vs. Uruguay


Millions of fans want revenge, but Gyan and Maxwell Konadu have warned the players and the whole team to control their emotions and not to enter the field with a vengeance on their minds. They urged the team to withstand the desire to enter the next round, focus on the game plan, and follow the technical instructions. 


Uruguay suffered disappointing matches at Qatar 2022, as they were thrashed by Portugal and struggled to win against South Korea, the match’s outcome being a draw. They would be excited to move ahead and repeat history. Three points would be enough to go ahead in the tournament, provided South Korea faces defeat against Portugal. Contrary to that, Ghana has shown good performance playing at the FIFA World Cup 2022, scoring five times in two matches, which shows strong attacking moves. It has a few loopholes in their defense, but they will focus on their attacking abilities.


A win in this match guarantees their place in the round of 16, while a draw may suffice if Portugal avoids defeat against South Korea in the other group match. On the other hand, Uruguay might face the risk of losing two group-stage games in the World Cup.
