The West African heavyweights have suffered on the house of Euro Champions Portugal and Uruguay after Luiz Suárez handball situation in 2010 denied the Black Stars a semi-finals spot of the tournament.

Uruguay stretched Ghana for penalties after talisman Asamoah Gyan had his kick denied by the woodwork in the stoppage time.

It was a difficult moment for Ghana, as it kicked the out of the Mundial at the quarter finals stage.

Ghana in Brazil 2014, World Cup faced Portugal in the Group stage were they lost by 2-1 courtesy a winner from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having been housed in Group H, with two of their former opponents former Ghana international Laryea Kingston wants the Black Stars to see Portugal and Uruguay games as revenge and nothing more.

“It is going to be interesting at the World Cup because I see our games with Portugal and Uruguay as an opportunity for the boys to perform beyond their expectation,” Kingston told Daily Graphic.

“Against Portugal, the team must see it as a chance to seek revenge after losing to them in 2014 but Uruguay’s game will be something else”

He added, “I believe the team must do everything to beat Uruguay to put the entire continent at peace after what Suarez did to Africa in 2010. It is possible and I believe having that at the back of their minds alone should be enough to win that match.”

Black Stars will play Switzerland in an International friendly on November 17, before travelling to Qatar for the World Cup.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup takes place between November 20 and December 18.

However, Ghana will open their account with Group H opener against Portugal on November 24, 2022.
