Uruguay lost to Portugal on Matchday 2 of the Qatar 2022 group stage, which put them in a tough spot. Let’s take a look at what results they need to qualify in the FIFA World Cup.

The 2nd match of the Qatar 2022 group stage is on and there is a lot to play for in the final round. Portugal have already secured their place in the round of 16 with a win over Uruguay, but Group H will be a zone to watch regardless.

The Portuguese national team is just one of the few teams to have punched their ticket to the knockout stage for the 2nd leg, along with France and Brazil. For most teams, things are still open before the group finals.

La Celeste had a poor start to the competition, failing to break the deadlock against South Korea before losing to Portugal. Even so, it’s not over for Diego Alonso’s men.

Are Uruguay out of the 2022 World Cup?

Uruguay are not eliminated from the 2022 World Cup yet. If they beat Ghana and South Korea doesn’t defeat Portugal, Uruguay would qualify for the knockout stage in Qatar.

If the Asian team also wins, Uruguay would need to end with better goal difference. On the other hand, Uruguay would automatically be eliminated from the tournament if they don’t defeat Ghana.
