Two-time champion Uruguay comes into the World Cup with an aging core, but also possesses two of the most exciting you talents in world football - Darwin Nunez and Fede Valverde.

Ghana, at this moment, might have been written off by experts to make it out of the group. But it has a strong core of players and a few European stars who switched allegiance to the Black Stars in recent times.

The most prominent of the latter group is Inaki Williams, who has been a pillar of consistency for Atletico Bilbao over the last few years.

Mohammed Kudus, who is having a sensational season with Ajax (10 goals), is another player Ghana fans can pin their hopes for an upset in this group.
