South Korea take on Ghana in round two of the World Cup group stage. The upcoming game will take place at Education City Stadium this coming Monday.

Following the opening round of the World Cup Group H matches, South Korea are number two on one point, while Ghana have zero points as number four. The Black Stars are taking on number 61 in the FIFA world ranking, with the home side sitting as number 28.

Both teams could perhaps, and it is a big perhaps, squeeze their way into second place if all the stars align. The most likely scenario though will be for them to head home after the first three matches.

Position in the World Cup standings: South Korea vs Ghana

Judging by the prices from the bookies, we have a fairly even match on our hands when South Korea go up against Ghana. Claiming three points in such a tough encounter would go a long way in qualifying for the next stage. Ghana fought tooth and nail in a thrilling group opener before succumbing to a 3-2 defeat against Portugal. Scoring twice was good, but conceding that many goals must be cause for concern before their upcoming fixtures.
