Fernando Santos’ side will also take on Uruguay and South Korea in a challenging group, as their African counterparts face an uphill battle to make it through to the knockout stages.

Cristiano Ronaldo made a surprise appearance at a press conference earlier this week to demand that focus be on the football rather than his actions, as he desperately seeks to help Portugal finally achieve the big one after several World Cup disappointments.

Portugal have only ever progressed to the semi-finals of the World Cup on two occasions in 1966 and 2006, and they have failed to go beyond the last 16 in four of their last five tournaments.

They were eliminated in the last 16 by fellow Group H rivals Uruguay in Russia four years ago and have only recorded three wins from their last 11 games at the World Cup finals, although they warmed up for the competition in an ideal fashion by beating Nigeria 4-0 in last Thursday’s friendly.

Following a brief absence from the World Cup in 2018, Ghana are now back and are already dreaming of sweet revenge in Group H.

Before renewing hostilities with Uruguay on December 2, Ghana prepare for a fourth World Cup appearance since 2006, and only once have they been knocked out at the group stage.

However, that disappointing exit came in their most recent appearance in 2014, bowing out without a victory, and they also failed to prevail in any of their three Africa Cup of Nations matches earlier this year before Otto Addo took the reins.

However, the Black Stars enter the World Cup having won seven of their last eight matches across all competitions.

Portugal vs. Ghana Head to head

These two nations have previously met on just one occasion in the World Cup back in 2014, where Portugal claimed a 2-1 victory.

Ghana Team News

The likes of Kamaldeen Sulemana, Thomas Partey and Alexander Djiku will all expect to come back into the Ghana XI after being named on the bench against Switzerland.

Now playing for Al-Sadd, Andre Ayew would become the highest appearance-maker for African players at a World Cup with eight should he feature here.
