Portugal expects to defeat South Korea in their Group H encounter on Friday, despite having already advanced to the World Cup knockout stage (3pm kick-off, UK time). But here is the prediction and preview.
South Korea vs. Portugal Preview
South Korea is also a strong candidate for the 2022 World Cup. They intend to host again in 2022, like they did in 2002. Given how vital he was to Korea last year, supporters would be disappointed if Heung-min Son is injured and unable to compete in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Portugal possesses the world’s top football abilities. They can’t obtain enough gold in 2022. Cristiano Ronaldo is a great fan of Fernando Santos. Cristiano Ronaldo will record his fifth World Cup goal if he scores at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Joao Felix, Diogo Jota, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Neves, and Bernado Silva are among the well-known sportsmen who will compete in 2022.
South Korean players and fans wept after their team was defeated by Ghana. South Korea needed Portugal to beat Portugal and Ghana to lose to Uruguay to advance to the round of 16.
South Korea has already qualified for the competition and will face Portugal on Friday in Qatar. Even though Fernando Santos’ squad advanced due to Bruno Fernandes’ two goals against Uruguay, South Korea might be eliminated if they do not win their last game.
Referee Anthony Taylor dismissed Taegeuk Warriors head coach Paulo Bento after the team fell 3-2 against Ghana. This was just another setback for the squad. They can’t only beat Portugal; they’ll need support from the other games in Group H as well.
Ghana is presently in second position with three points, one point ahead of Uruguay, which is in third place due to less goals scored than Ghana. On Friday, there will be changes in all three nations. Who do you think will be first and second in five years?
The Portuguese took their time in Qatar. Only Spain (eight goals), England (six goals), and France (six goals) have scored more, with all of those goals coming after halftime. Portugal scored three goals against Ghana between the 65th and 80th minutes.
South Korea is certain to score at least once if Cho Gue-Sung, who scored twice off the bench against Ghana, starts. Rafael Leao, Goncalo Ramos, and Andre Silva will face South Korea in order to advance to the round of 16. Portugal could win with the slight score.
