Qualification Scenario For Uruguay & Ghana A victory will send Ghana to the next round, and a draw will leave them at the mercy of Portugal vs South Korea. If Portugal wins, they will go through, but a draw will bring the equation down to goal difference. Uruguay, meanwhile, must win and hope Portugal beat South Korea by a high margin.

Team News - Portugal Nuno Mendes was in tears as he limped off the field in Portugal's 2-0 win over Uruguay. If he is unfit, expect Raphaël Guerreiro to start at left back.  Danilo Pereira and Otavio also remain on the sideline due to injuries. Rafael Leao might get his first start of the World Cup.

Team News - South Korea Paulo Bento, the South Korea manager, will be watching everything from the stands, after being shown a straight red card by the referee in the last game. Kim Min-Jae injured his calf and had to walk off in the 92nd minute. Other than this forced change, they are likely to play the same team.

Team News - Uruguay Uruguay don't have any injury concerns but they have struggled to find the perfect formation. Diego Alonso must be scratching his head over the dilemma between Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, while Darwin Nunez's spot is fixed in the team.

Team News - Ghana Ghana will be itching for revenge, and Mohammad Kudus is going to be the key man for them. Kudus is in scintillating form, and will love to exploit the incoherence of this Uruguayan defence. Inaki Williams should also be watched out for.
