Match preview and statistics
South Korea played a 0-0 draw in their first game of the World Cup against Uruguay. They had zero shots on target during the game as they sat back and wanted to hit on the counter. South Korea completed 326 passes and had 0.64 passes.
South Korea relied on long balls against Uruguay as they look to hit them while they sit back to withstand pressure. They had one big chance during the game but were unable to convert it. South Korea will need to do better if they want to get something against Ghana. They will have to try to create and play more on the ground as Ghana have very tall centre-backs and were able to defend deep against Portugal

Ghana suffered a 2-3 defeat to Portugal in their opening game of the World Cup in a very tough game. The Black Stars started the game so well that the first- half ended in a 0-0 draw. Portugal was awarded a penalty in the 63rd minute as Mohamed Slaisu brought down Cristiano Ronaldo in the box. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoreline as he converted the penalty with a strike into the back of the net.
Andre Ayew levelled the scoreline in the 73rd minute with a finish from very close range. Joao Felix made it 2-1 in the 78th minute as he chipped the ball over the goalkeeper. Rafael Leao made it 3-1 in the 80th minute with a one-time strike into the bottom-right corner. Osman Bukari pulled one back in the 89th minute with a nice header into the top-right corner. Ghana had a chance to draw level in the last minute but a slip from Inaki Williams ensured Portugal secure all three points.
Ghana played extremely well in the second half and could have won the game or even played a draw as Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty was deemed controversial. Williams was unable to stand on his feet after he hijacked the ball when Costa rolled the ball out in the last minute of the game. Ghana utilized the wing so well with their two goals coming from crosses from the left side of the wing.
