On December 2, Ghana and Uruguay go head-to-head as part of the conclusion to the World Cup 2022's surprising group H games.

This group has seen some unexpected results, with Uruguay — generally a well-performing team — failing to secure a single win, and Ghana performing above expectations. 

Ahead of this final game for both teams, Ghana is the runner-up in the group — though that could all change with this last game, as well as Portugal vs South Korea which happens at the same time.

If you want to see these two teams compete, you'll find it fairly easy to do, wherever you live. Here's how to watch the Uruguay vs Ghana game from around the world.

Uruguay vs Ghana: important information

When does Uruguay vs Ghana kick off?

Kick-off for the Uruguay vs Ghana game is at 10 am ET/7 am PT/3 pm GMT, so it's one of the earlier games of the day.

The match will take place at the same time as Portugal vs South Korea, so both group H matches occur simultanously. Once the final whistle blows, we'll know which two teams are through to the knockout rounds.

Where does Uruguay vs Ghana take place?

The Al Janoub Stadium will play host to Uruguay vs Ghana. 

This 44,000-capacity stadium, situated in Al-Wakrah, Qatar, is one of the many stadiums Qatar built especially for the World Cup.

What you need to know about the match

Though Ghana currently has more points in its group than Uruguay, it's a slim margin.

Both Uruguay and Ghana need to win this game to progress; a loss here means the team will be disqualified.

A draw will work for Ghana if South Korea loses, or if that game's a draw, or if South Korea wins by only one goal.

A draw won't work for Uruguay, it needs to win. Even if it does win, it needs to hope that South Korea doesn't, as if both teams win they'll be equal on group points, and Uruguay has to make up a goal differential of one less than South Korea has. That means it needs to win by at least one more goal than the Asian team does.

South Korea winning its game isn't hugely likely, as it's up against Portugal which hasn't lost a game yet.

This turn of events isn't impossible but Uruguay will need to really improve its game over its lackluster first two performances.
