South Korea head coach Paulo Bento says he is under no pressure ahead of their crucial second World Cup Group match against Ghana.
The Asian country played out a gritty 0-0 draw with Uruguay while the Black Stars lost 3-2 to Portugal on Thursday.
Both teams desperately need a victory after dropping points in the first game.
“I said earlier I do not feel any pressure, I never did and never will,” Portuguese Bento told reporters on Sunday.
“During the first game, we had a chance of at least ensuring a third-place finish. In the second game, we will keep this opportunity… we will enter the field with a focus on a win.
“I don’t feel any pressure whatsoever. I would love the players to feel the way I do, but I know they come from a different culture… We will have a difficult game but we are able to do well.”
