Uruguay were the first ever winners of the World Cup and they have undoubtedly been the surprise package of this year's tournament in South Africa, after being the very last team to qualify for the finals. A play-off win over Costa Rica was required for Uruguay to qualify for the 2010 finals and they haven't looked back since. Conceding just one goal, Uruguay are unbeaten in the tournament, winning Group A at the expense of France.

Despite a shaky patch half way through their second half win over South Korea in the last sixteen, Uruguay have looked solid defensively and have a real cutting edge in the final third with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez.

Ghana on the other hand are the romantic story of this World Cup. Played on African soil for the first time, the Black Stars were unfancied pre-tournament but became the only African side to get out of their group and after a 2-1 win over the United States have reached the World CUp quarter-finals.
