South Korea vs Ghana – World Cup Group H: How they’re doing, injuries and predictions as both nations chase first wins

World Cup history was made in South Korea’s opening game as both teams scored ZERO shots on goal in a draw against Uruguay.

This time Ghana is lurking and both sides are chasing their first win.



And if any of them are aiming to make the last 16, they almost certainly have to win that one.

Cristinao Ronaldo’s Portugal remain group favorites but a win here would put these sides a big step closer to knockout qualification.

So no pressure…

SunSport takes a look at what to expect from South Korea vs Ghana… including the result prediction.
