Former Black Stars goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda has shared his comment after Ghana clashed with Portugal and Uruguay in Group H alongside Korea Republic in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
Dauda claimed Ghana has unfinished business with Uruguay and Portugal due to what happened in 2010 and 2014.
The veteran goalkeeper was in the post when Ghana was beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo’s side with a 2-1 scoreline in Germany.
Ghana played their last group game in 2014 against Portugal but will this time around open the journey with them.
After reaching the quarter-finals in the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa, Ghana was knocked out by Uruguay in a penalty shootout. The incident that caused headache to Ghanaians was when Luiz Suarez defended a goal with his hand in the penalty box during the extra time. The penalty was squandered by the top scorer of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan.
Before the mundial in 2014, Ghana played an international friendly with Japan before jetting off for the final tournament.
Speaking in an interview with Ghanasportspage.com, Fatawu revealed;
“By the grace of God we’ve seen the countries to play with and there are some teams we have unfinished business with like Uruguay (what happened in 2010) and a defeat to Portugal in 2014. We also played with Korea in America before the World Cup so this time they all know how to play against each other because of what happened in the previous tournament.
“For Portugal, they defeated us so I will say it is a revenge time the same as Uruguay. It is a very interesting group for us.” He ended.
