World Cup 2022 LIVE: South Korea vs Ghana latest score, goals and updates as Son Heung-min starts


Fifa World Cup: Results and reaction from day eigh

South Korea and Ghana meet in Group H of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar today.

Each side is seeking a first win at this unique winter edition of the tournament, with South Korea having held Uruguay to a promising 0-0 draw in their opening game, while Ghana put in a spirited performance as they came up narrowly short against Portugal, who emerged 3-2 victors over the Black Stars.

A win here for South Korea, at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, would put them in a strong position to qualify for the knockouts, with a tie against Portugal to come. Meanwhile, Ghana have more work to do but would keep themselves in with a shot at advancing if they were to win today. Of course, the outcome of the day’s other Group H game between Portugal and Uruguay will also have an impact on the prospects of South Korea and Ghana.

Andre Ayew and Osman Bukari were the goalscorers for Ghana in their defeat by Portugal, while Tottenham star Son Heung-min is South Korea’s greatest asset.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 0-0 South Korea

18 mins: The be-masked Son Heung-min whips it in, out for another corner. The deliveries haven’t been great and the next is easily cleared by Ghana. Son then goes for a spectacular overhead kick from the ball back in but misses completely. Superb!

In more serious matters, Ghana really need to have a spell of possession here.

Ghana vs South Korea team news

South Korea’s key defender Kim Min-jae passed a late fitness and was included in his country’s line-up for their World Cup Group H clash against Ghana at the Education City Stadium.

The Napoli centre-back had been doubtful due to a calf injury and coach Paulo Bento said he would check Kim’s status at the last minute before making the call on his availability.

Bento made three changes to his side and Ghana did the same as they reshuffled their defence and brought in Jordan Ayew upfront in a more attacking 4-3-3 line-up after fielding three central defenders against Portugal last week.

Tariq Lamptey and Gideon Mensah start in a new full-back pairing and central defender Alexander Djiku was dropped.

South Korea XI: Kim S-g, Kim M-h, Kim M-j, Kim Y-g, Kim J-s, Jung, Kwon, Jeong, Hwang, Son, Cho

Ghana XI: Ati-Zigi, Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah, Partey, Abdul Samed, Kudus, A Ayew, Williams, J Ayew

South Korea vs Ghana

Right, our attention now turns to South Korea vs Ghana in Group H. Both teams showed plenty of positive signs in their opening games – South Korea playing out a hard-fought 0-0 draw with Uruguay, while Ghana were unlucky to slip to a 3-2 defeat against Portugal.

This game will be decisive for both their hopes of reaching the last 16.

Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar in shock after audacious scoop goal against Serbia is given

Cameroon star Vincent Aboubakar scored one of the goals of the 2022 World Cup so far after his audacious scoop was given following a VAR check in a thrilling clash against Serbia.

With his team trailing 3-1 with half-an-hour to go, Aboubakar sat down Serbia defender Nemanja Maksimovic before terrifically lobbing keeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

Yet the striker seemed nonplussed when the offside flag was lifted with Aboubakar himself seemingly accepting that he timed his run a tad early.

But following a quick VAR review, using the semi-automated offside technology, he was shown to be onside and the goal was given.
