Before their second group encounter at the ongoing 2022 World Cup on Monday, Ghana defender Daniel Amartey said that coach Otto Addo had devised a strategy to halt South Korea attacker Son Heung-min.
With five goals and two assists in 19 games so far this season, Son has been one of Tottenham’s most productive players.
In their opening match, the Black Stars fell to Portugal 3-2, while South Korea held Uruguay to a scoreless draw in the other Group H match. To advance to the next round of the competition, Ghana will need to defeat South Korea.
“I know Son because we play in the premier league and we have a strategy to stop him,” Amartey said at a pre-match press conference.
“We will try to stop every offense against Korea and Son is a very good player because I know him because I worked with him in Germany.”
“I can’t talk about the game plan for tomorrow but I have an idea of what we are going to do.”
On Monday, November 28, 2022, at 7:00 p.m., the game is slated to take place at the Education City Stadium (13:00 GMT).
Between November 20 and December 18, 2022, the FIFA World Cup will be held.
Only three African teams have ever advanced to the quarterfinals: Ghana (2010), Senegal (2002), and Cameroon (1990).
