Ghana, the youngest team in the FIFA World Cup, will need to avoid defeat in their Group H match against South Korea on Monday if they are to stay in the tournament. In their opening match of the tournament, Ghana gave a tough fight to Cristiano Ronaldo’s men’s Portugal but lost 2-3. Team coach Otto Ado questioned the referee’s decision to award a penalty to Ronaldo in this match. Edo alleged that the referee had gifted Ronaldo a goal by giving him a penalty.
Edo, however, is looking to put the past behind him and prepare for the next bout. He said, “That match is done. We can’t do anything about it now. Our focus is on the next match.” Ghana’s best performance in the World Cup has been reaching the quarter-finals in 2010. The South Korean team has reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2002 and the team has qualified for the World Cup for the sixth time in a row. South Korea were successful in holding Uruguay to a goalless draw in their opening match. The team will try to strengthen its position in the points table with a win.
