Beaten 3-2 by Portugal in their opening Group H encounter, Ghana will look to bounce back as they take on Korea Republic at Education City Stadium, where the Asian side kicked off their campaign with a goalless draw against Uruguay. This is the first competitive meeting between the two teams.

Brazil and Switzerland go head-to-head with top spot in Group G the prize after both teams made winning starts to their campaigns. A Breel Embolo goal gave Switzerland an opening 1-0 victory against Cameroon before Brazil overcame Serbia 2-0 thanks to two Richarlison strikes. Four years ago, the teams drew their opening fixture 1-1 in Rostov, and they also drew 2-2 at the 1950 tournament in São Paulo.

Portugal staked an early claim for top spot in Group H as they followed Uruguay’s opening 0-0 draw with Korea Republic by defeating Ghana 3-2, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s successful penalty making him the first male player to score in five FIFA World Cups. Portugal now face Uruguay knowing that a second victory would secure their place in the round of 16.
