Uruguay vs Ghana Match Preview
Ghana will be looking to maintain their unexpected run in the World Cup by qualifying to the semi finals for the first time in their history when they take on Uruguay on Friday.

The African team has already bettered its best performance in the competition by dumping out United States in the knockout stage and qualifying to the quarter finals.

Having seen his side put up impressive performances, coach Milovan Rajevac will be optimistic that they can become the first African team to progress to the semi finals at the World Cup.

Uruguay on the other hand start the match as favorites to qualify for their first semi final clash in more than four decades. The South American side had failed to progress past the knockout stage since 1970 but have impressed in their four games with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez being particularly impressive up front.

Uruguay vs Ghana Head-to-head:
- This will be the first full international between the two teams. The Ghanaian side that won the Fifa Under-20 World Cup last year drew 2-2 with Uruguay in the group stage.

- Uruguay have reached the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 1970. That year they beat the USSR 1-0 to reach the final four, before losing 3-1 to Brazil in the semi-finals.

- The Uruguayans have conceded only one goal in four games in South Africa.

- They are unbeaten in their last six World Cup games, including their last two group matches in 2002 (which were both drawn).

- Luis Suarez's goal against South Korea made him the first Uruguayan to score in successive World Cup matches since Juan Eduardo Hohberg in 1954.

- The Black Stars are the third African team to reach the World Cup quarter-finals, following in the footsteps of Cameroon (1990) and Senegal (2002). Victory would make them the first to reach the semi-finals.

- Asamoah Gyan has scored three times in South Africa, and also netted at the 2006 World Cup. He needs one more to match Roger Milla's African record of five career World Cup goals.

- No African side has ever won a World Cup knock-out match without the game going to extra-time.
