South Korea, Ghana to be desperate for victory
News Desk || risingbd.com
South Korea is going head to head with Ghana at 13:00 UTC today (Monday) at Education City Stadium in Qatar, where both teams will be desperate for victory.
The two teams are meeting for the first time since 2014 when Ghana defeated South Korea 4-0 with a hat-trick from Jordan Ayew.
It's now a battle for position in the group after Ghana lost their World Cup opener 3-2 against Portugal, while South Korea earned a point with a scoreless draw against Uruguay.
It's nearly a must-win scenario for Ghana who are on the brink of elimination in the group with zero points and a -1 goal differential.
However, even though they created opportunities in attack, the ability to finish off chances was missing as the Asian side had no shots on target.
South Korea: Seung-gyu; Moon-hwan, Min-jae, Young-gwon, Jin-su; Jung, In-beom; Na, Lee, Son; Ui-jo
Ghana: Ati Zigi; Seidu, Amartey, Djiku, Baba; Partey, Abdul Samed; Bukari, Kudus, A. Ayew; Williams
