Ex-Ghana player, John Paintsil has warned the Black Stars not to harbor any hard feelings towards Uruguay when both sides cross paths at the 2022 World Cup.

Paintsil, who was part of the 2010 squad that lost to Uruguay on penalties, believes playing with anger goes a long way to affect the team negatively.

Ghana will begin its World Cup journey against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal before playing the Korea Republic and Uruguay in the final group game.

Ex-Ghana defender John Paintsil has urged the Black Stars to throw away any form of anger when Ghana cross swords with Uruguay at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Ghana’s Group H game against the South American nation has been dubbed a ‘Revenge game’ by most Ghanaians following the heart-aching loss to the two-time World champions in 2010.

The Black Stars were on the cusp of World Cup history when they played against Uruguay in the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup but for the act of ‘bravery’ on the part of Luis Suarez, who handled a goal-bound effort denied Ghana and Africa a semifinal berth.
