Kwon Chang-hoon, a midfielder for South Korea, believes his team will win Monday’s match against Ghana.
Last Thursday, the Asian superpowers held Uruguay to a thrilling 0-0 draw in their opening game of the group stage, while Ghana fell to Portugal in a contentious match.
Chang-hoon thinks South Korea can benefit from Ghana’s weakness considering both teams need a victory to increase their chances of moving on to the next round.
“We tend to give a lot of space to the side fullback. We have a lot of fast players. I think it is a game that must be played. I will analyze the remaining time and prepare well,” he told reporters at the team’s training session.
He added: “There seem to be a lot of players who are quite speedy and reckless. There were many cases where the opponent also played with one-on-one ability, but it made Portugal’s backspace a lot of threat. There are players with one-on-one ability, so we need to think It’s the same.
At the Education City stadium in Al Rayyan on Monday, Ghana will take on South Korea.
