After watching what their African brothers (Cameroon) just did, Ghana will be eager to keep the momentum going aginst South Korea.


Team news. There are three changes to the South Korea side from their goalless draw with Uruguay. Midfielder Na Sang-ho, Mainz striker Lee Jae-sung and forward Hwang Ui-jo have all dropped to the bench as Tottenham star  Son Heung-min leads the side.


South Korea XI: Seung-gyu, Jin-su, Min-jae, Woo-young, In-beom, Heung-min, Gue-sung, Moon-hwan, Young-gwon, Chang-hoon, Woo-yeung.


Ghana also make the same number of changes to the side that played against Portugal. Brighton star Tariq Lamptey is in alongside Jordan Ayew and Gideon Mensah.


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


State of play: Having lost their opener to Portugal, Ghana must avoid defeat this afternoon to stand a chance of progressing. South Korea will still be in it irrespective of today's result, but they can strengthen their position with a win.

Official line-ups for both teams.
