World Cup 2022: No injury concerns as Ghana prepares to battle South Korea today

On Sunday, the 26 players had their final training session at the Aspire Zone Training Center in Doha in preparation for the big game against the Taegeuk Warriors.

On Sunday, the players were all smiles as they trained with coach Otto Addo ahead of the match against the Taegeuk Warriors.

Ghana will undoubtedly go all out against South Korea in their second Group H match at the World Cup in Qatar on Monday at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.

The Black Stars were defeated 3-2 by Portugal in the first match last Thursday, with Cristiano Ronaldo converting a contentious penalty that has dominated headlines ever since.

Ghana will have to break down a very strong Korean defense to get a result that keeps their knockout round hopes alive.

The Black Stars have only failed the group stage test once, in the 2014 edition in Brazil; in their previous two World Cup appearances, they advanced past the groups to the next round in 2006 and 2010, respectively.

Mohammed Kudus is expected to attend if things go Ghana’s way against the Koreans.


South Korea shared the spoils with Uruguay in their first group game last Thursday after a goalless draw with no shots on goal.

Although it was not the start the Taeguk Warriors had hoped for, coach Paulo Bento praised his team’s defensive ethics and overall performance.

Korea is well aware of the task ahead of them; they need to defeat Ghana in order to consider progressing to the next round, as they face Portugal in their final group match.

The Taeguk Warriors have only made it to the World Cup knockout round twice, in 2002 as co-hosts and in 2010 in South Africa.

Korea and Ghana have split their head-to-head meetings in all competitions, with four wins and one draw. Ghana thrashed the Koreans 4-0 in their last meeting in June 2014.
