Ghana confirmed XI vs South Korea: Jordan Ayew starts, Baba Rahman benched

Ghana coach Otto Addo has made three changes to the team that lost to Portugal in their World Cup opener on Thursday.

Jordan Ayew, who came on as a second-half substitute in the 3-2 defeat, starts, as do Tariq Lamptey and Gideon Mensah.

Baba Rahman, Alexander Djiku, and Alidu Seidu have been relegated to the bench, as Otto Addo’s side seek a win to stay alive in the competition.

Lawrence Ati-Zigi remains in goal, while the preferred defenders are Lamptey, Daniel Amartey, Mohammed Salisu, and Mensah.

Thomas Partey, Mohammed Kudus, and Salis Abdul Samed start in the midfield, as they did against Portugal.

Andre Ayew, who scored in the first match, starts in attack alongside Inaki Williams and his brother Jordan.

The match will kick off at 1 pm local time.
