South Korea have the woodwork to thank for the draw against Uruguay. Diego Godin and Federico Valverde both hit it to end each half. The Koreans were lucky, but we already knew that the team excels in not letting opponents score. This defensive line full of Kims (Kim Jin-su, Kim Young-Gwon, Kim Min-Jae, and Kim Moon-hwan started in front of goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu) is particularly hard to crack and it is Korea’s strongest suit, despite having an absolute football star on offence, in Son Heung-min.
Paulo Bento is happy to know that Son is ready to play, even in a mask. In fact, the mask was less of a wardrobe issue. The one bothering him was the oversized captain’s armband that kept falling off.
Napoli defender Kim Min-jae injured his calf in the second half of the Uruguay match, but will probably be ready for South Korea vs Ghana.
Ghana is an inexperienced team. Otto Addo’s 26-man squad includes 11 players who had less than 5 international caps entering the World Cup. He did, however, choose his most experienced players to face Portugal and Ghana nearly got one point out of the game.
Andre Ayew, who scored in the first match, will likely keep his starting sport ahead of his brother, Jordan Ayew. He did train by himself ion Friday, but he joined the team over the weekend and is deemed fit to feature again in this South Korea vs Ghana match.
South Korea (4-2-3-1): Kim SG; Kim M, Kim MJ, Kim YG, Kim JS; Hwang IB, Jung; Na, Lee JS, Son HM; Hwang UJ
Ghana (5-3-2): Ati-Zigi; Seidu, Amartey, Djiku, Salisu, Rahman; Partey, Kudus, Samed; A. Ayew, Williams
There is not much to separate the two teams. A draw is a likely result.
