Ghana VS South Korea | World Cup

Brazil and Portugal will be looking to build on their opening wins at the 2022 World Cup, while Cameroon and Ghana attempt to put their first points on the board on Monday.
Cameroon and Serbia kick off the day's action at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, with both teams having lost their first games.
The Indomitable Lions showed promise in their 1-0 defeat to Switzerland on Thursday but they ran out of steam in the second half and didn't cause the opposition too many problems.
Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song insists they cannot afford to make any more mistakes or risk going home early after seeing his defence switch off at the start of the second half which allowed Breel Embolo to score the all-important goal.
"It's a feeling of disappointment. We wanted more but football at this level is decided by small details," Song said. "There was a brief let-up and we conceded a goal. But we know everything is still possible. We still have two games to play and we know we have no more room for error."
The Eagles frustrated Brazil for just over an hour on Thursday before a brace from Richarlison condemned them to defeat. The Selecao went on to dominate proceedings in the closing stages as Dragan Stojkovic's side attempted to get back into the contest and they will look for an early goal against the Central Africans to avoid a similar fate on matchday 2.

Ghana VS South Korea 

Ghana face South Korea at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan knowing that anything less than a win will mean an early exit from the World Cup.
The Black Stars went down 3-2 to Portugal in an exciting encounter on Thursday to leave them at the bottom of Group H. All five goals came in the final 25 minutes as Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring from the spot in the 65th minute before Andre Ayew equalised eight minutes later.
But two quick-fire goals from Joao Felix (78') and Rafael Leao (80') restored the Selecao's lead, although they were made to sweat late on when Osman Bukari pulled another one back for Otto Addo's side in the 89th minute.
Addo criticised the referee for awarding a soft penalty after Ronaldo went to ground under a challenge from Mohammed Salisu, with VAR deciding not to review the incident.
"If somebody scores a goal, congratulations. But this was really a gift. Really a gift," Addo said. "What more can I say? (It was) a special gift from the referee.
"I think it [the penalty] was really the wrong decision. I don't know why VAR didn't come up. There's no explanation for me. And then it's difficult against a world-class team when they are leading."
The Taegeuk Warriors picked up a point in their World Cup opener after playing out to a goalless draw with Uruguay on Thursday - the fourth of the tournament.
Heung-Min Son wore a facemask after recovering from a fractured eye socket and Paulo Bento's side will be banking on him to shine against Ghana, having made little impact last time out.
Brazil will be seeking their first victory over Switzerland in the World Cup when they lock horns at the Stadium 974 in Doha.
The two nations have met twice previously in the tournament, drawing on both occasions - 2-2 in 1950 and 1-1 in 2018.
Tite's side were made to work for their 2-0 win over Serbia on matchday 1 and the Swiss will pose another stern test on Monday as they are notoriously difficult to beat.
Embolo's 48th-minute goal against Cameroon ensured that Nati had gone unbeaten in their last six opening matches of the World Cup and they've reached the last 16 in three of the last four editions.
Uruguay may need to employ the dark arts when they take on Portugal at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail.
La Celeste are renowned for adopting a mix of style and aggression and they could lean on the latter in an attempt to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Diego Alonso's side were unfortunate not to come away with all three points against South Korea after both Diego Godin and Federico Valverde hit the woodwork.
The Selecao did just enough to see off Ghana on Thursday and Ronaldo became the first player to score in five World Cups when he broke the deadlock from 12 yards out on 65 minutes.
However, the South Americans will be foolish to focus all their attention on Ronaldo and they would do well to keep an eye on Bruno Fernandes, who registered two assists against the Black Stars.
