South Korea looked impressive in their opening encounter at this year’s World Cup in Qatar, drawing a difficult draw with Uruguay. They now prepare for a key match against Ghana, who were defeated 3-2 by Portugal.
Since the draw in April, both sides have had this match marked as their best opportunity for maximum points. A win would give either team a decent chance of progressing to the competition’s knockout round.
Hwang Ui-jo wasted a near-perfect goal opportunity in the 34th minute, arching his attempt up and over the crossbar from close range. He never really had an opportunity to have an impact on the game and was finally replaced by Cho Gue-sung.
Lee Kang-in came in for Na Sang-ho, who did well as a substitute on the right side of the attack, but it was the RCD Mallorca player who stood out the most, as he brought a more energetic attitude to the game.
According to reports in South Korea coach, Paulo Bento will change his tactics against Ghana. He is set to play fast wingers in an all-attack plan on Monday when the Asian giants battle the Black Stars of Ghana at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.
