South Korea and Ghana will meet at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan on Monday, November 28, 2022 at 8:00 a.m. (ET) in the second day of the Qatar 2022 World Cup group stage match.
It will be their 10th meeting overall. Interestingly, there are no favorites in the head-to-head matches as both Ghana from CAF and South Korea from AFC have four wins to their name so far. The remaining match thus ended in a draw.
Their last match was played on 9 June 2014 and ended in a comfortable 4–0 win for the Black Stars in an international friendly. It promises to be an even more exciting clash as they meet for the first time since then, this time in the early stages of Qatar 2022.
South Korea probable lineup
When Son Heung-min returned to action for South Korea against Uruguay while wearing a protective mask due to his recent eye socket fracture, supporters were ecstatic. Bento now has nothing to worry about, so he should have no qualms about sending out the same starting eleven at the Education City Stadium with Hwang Ui-jo at the helm.
South Korea possible starting XI:
Seung-gyu; Moon-hwan, Min-jae, Young-gwon, Jin-su; Jung, In-beom; Na, Lee, Son; Ui-jo.
Ghana probable lineup
The Black Stars may switch to a four-man defense today due to the importance of a win after Otto Addo lined out in a defensive-minded formation for their match against Portugal, which almost paid rewards. For Monday’s meeting, Addo should have all 26 players available to work with. If the system is altered, Mohammed Salisu’s starting role may be in jeopardy as Bukari lobbies for his return in an offensive formation.
Ghana possible starting XI:
Ati Zigi; Seidu, Amartey, Djiku, Baba; Partey, Abdul Samed; Bukari, Kudus, A. Ayew; Williams
