It would be difficult for Ghana to defeat South Korea in their second group encounter, according to coach Otto Addo.
The Black Stars’ 2022 World Cup campaign began against Portugal on Thursday at the 974 Stadium.
Sadly enough, the European team upset the four-time African champions 3-2.
Monday’s match between Ghana and South Korea at the Education City Stadium is scheduled to begin at 13:00 GMT.
Addo stated that they needed to defeat the Koreans in order to proceed to the competition’s next round before the game against the Asian squad.
When asked if Ghana can advance to the competition’s second round after its match against Portugal, the 49-year-old responded, “First of all, certainly, we have a chance, especially because they played a draw.
“If we win against South Korea and Portugal wins, hopefully, against Uruguay, then we will be second, so the chance is still great.
“And surely it will be very, very tough to beat South Korea because they are good. But now we have to win.
“We are under pressure but they are too,” he iterated.
Portugal now leads the group after the outcome, but given that South Korea and Uruguay drew 0-0 earlier in the day, the Black Stars’ loss today might not be too costly.
At Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Ghana’s group stage campaign will come to a thrilling conclusion when they take on Uruguay.
