South Korea fans may cast their minds back to 2002, when their country made the semi-finals during their home tournament, shared with Japan.

They lost 1-0 to Germany on the day.

However, they got their revenge in the 2018 World Cup, shocking the four-time winners 2-0, courtesy of two late stoppage time goals.

They will fancy their chances against a Ghana side who have been struggling for form recently, after failing to reach the knockout stages of the Africa Cup of Nations.


Nevertheless, Paulo Bento’s side will need to be wary of a whole host of Premier League stars including Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey, Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey, Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew and Mohammed Salisu of Southampton.
