  • South Korea began their 2022 FIFA World Cup group stage campaign with quite an impressive goalless draw against a strong Uruguayan side. The Koreans were arguably the better side in the first-half but it was a generally cagey match with limited chances for both sides.
  • Son Heung-min was the biggest injury concern for the South Koreans prior to the tournament but the Tottenham Hotspur forward appeared comfortable in his face mask the other day, leaving little to be concerned about.


  • It was a thrilling but probably frustrating 3-2 defeat to Portugal that kicked off Ghana’s group stage. The Black Stars went behind to a very dubious penalty award before fighting back quickly, having their two most effective players subbed off and then conceding twice in three minutes before notching what turned out to be a late consolation.
  • Otto Addo made substitutions based on players with a yellow card, albeit detrimental to the team, so that is a clear indication the likes of Mohammed Kudus and Andre Ayew will line up in a similar team lineup to the one that performed admirably against the Portuguese.



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Hwang In-beom, Jeong Woo-young; Na Sang-ho, Lee Jae-sung, Son Heung-min; Hwang Ui-jo




PREDICTED XI (5-3-2): Ati-Zigi; Seidu, Amartey, Djiku, Salisu, Baba Rahman; Partey; Kudus, Samed; A.Ayew, Willams




  • Korea Republic have played three matches against African opposition at the FIFA World Cup previously (W1 D1 L1)
  • Korea Republic have played and won two matches against African nations in 2022. 4-1 v Egypt (June) and 1-0 v Cameroon (September)
  • Korea Republic have kept a clean sheet in two successive FIFA World Cup matches for the first time
  • Korea Republic have never won their second match in a FIFA World Cup final competition (D4 L6)
  • Korea Republic scored two goals in each of their previous three FIFA World Cup matches against African teams
  • Ghana won 4-0 against Korea Republic in the last meeting between the two nations in a friendly in June 2014. Jordan Ayew scored a hat-trick on that occasion
  • Ghana are without a win in their last five FIFA World Cup matches (D2 L3)
  • Ghana have not failed to score in their last six FIFA World Cup matches
  • Ghana have not kept a clean sheet in their last eight World Cup matches
  • Against Portugal, André Ayew became the oldest goalscorer for Ghana in FIFA World Cup history at the age of 32 years and 342 days


Ghana have now scored in each of their last six FIFA World Cup appearances after their entertaining second-half against Portugal. After surprise qualification, they will not want their trip in Qatar to end early but know a victory is pretty much imperative in this match. They face a South Korean side that showed some enterprise but will be expected to show a lot more with Son Heung-min likely to see more of the ball in advanced areas. This could be, quite, one of the more entertaining games at this tournament.
