World Cup 2022 Group H: Fixtures, results, standings, squads & full details

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal and Luis Suarez's Uruguay had been paired together in Group H of the 2022 World Cup alongside Ghana and South Korea.

Portugal topped the group with two wins and a loss, earning six points. The Portuguese won their first two games in the group stage, first a 3-2 win over Ghana and then a 2-0 win over Uruguay. However, a loss against South Korea in the final group game halted their momentum.

South Korea surprised everyone with a win over Portugal in a must-win game in the final group game, with Hwang Hee-chan scoring a stoppage-time winner to give his team a 2-1 lead. They had collected just one point from the first two games, and edged Uruguay on goals scored.

Uruguay bowed out of the World Cup in group stage even after winning their final group game against Ghana. They were tied on points with South Korea and had the same goal difference, but finished below the Asian giants due to their inferior goals tally.

Ghana played well in this World Cup, but could manage to bag just three points in the group stage. They finished last in Group H.
