South Korea and Ghana will face off against each other on 28th November at the Education City Stadium in Qatar. This will be part of the second round of games in the group stages of the competition. They belong to a rugged Group H with World Cup giants Portugal and Uruguay in it. It will be difficult for South Korea and Ghana to qualify for the next round, which is why this game becomes essential for the teams. A loss in this match means a potential exit from the World Cup.
The last time these two countries faced each other, Ghana won the match 4-0. They will look to achieve a similar result. On the other hand, South Korea will put that thought to bed and concentrate on what lies ahead.
Official FIFA World Cup broadcasters

The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) has acquired the official broadcasting rights to telecast the FIFA World Cup in Ghana. The games will be telecasted exclusively on GTV Sports+, GTV and other free-to-air TV stations in the country. They will cover all the matches for free in the country.
FIFA World Cup Fixture table for both the teams
These are the fixtures for both teams. They both play their first match on 24th November against good quality teams. This will be the fixture for both teams to go for the win. South Korea is in good form, winning three out of their last five matches without any losses. On the other hand, Ghana only has one win in their last five with two losses. Ghana will want to put this record behind them and turn up well-prepared for the FIFA World Cup. South Korea defeated Germany in the group stage of the FIFA World cup 2018. This inspirational performance will be fresh in the minds of everyone, and Korea will want to repeat such performances.
Things to watch out for
- Ghana appointed new manager Otto Addo earlier this year after a poor display at the African Cup of Nations. Chris Hughton accompanies him in the management as well. Chris has been part of many premier league teams in the past and will bring that experience to the side.
- Thomas Partey will be the man in focus during their clash against South Korea. The midfielder plays for Arsenal in the premier league and will bring quality to the team. He will be the centre of things and operate as a midfield general for the country.
- When it comes to South Korea, there is only one man who will be the centre stage, Son Heung-Min. He ended the 2021-22 club campaign as the joint-highest scorer in the premier league and won the golden boot. He will lead the Korean side at the upcoming World Cup.
