Qualification is most straightforward for Ghana, who seal the deal with a win over Uruguay in their match scheduled for Friday. It would also be an opportunity for Ghana to seek revenge on the South Americans who beat them in the 2010 World Cup Quarter-finals.

For South Korea and Uruguay, who drew their match on November 25, qualification will also depend on the proceedings of the other match. South Korea will need to beat Portugal on demand and hope that Ghana does not beat Uruguay.  While the best result for a victorious Korea would be a draw in the other match, a win for Uruguay would see either Korea or Uruguay qualify based on higher GD.

Despite being the bottom-placed side, Uruguay are better placed than Korea as the result of the other game will likely not upset their chances, provided they beat Ghana comprehensively. The only chance of danger for Uruguay with a win would be Korea beating Portugal and Uruguay not beating Ghana with a two-goal difference or even a 2-0 win when Korea with 1-0 would have more number of goals.

However, the chances of Korea beating an upbeat Portuguese side are grim and hence the winner of the Ghana and Uruguay tie might end up being the qualifying side.
