South Korea coach Paulo Bento has confirmed Hwang Hee-Chan will not be in action when his side face the Black Stars on Monday.

The forward, who plies his trade for Wolverhampton Wanderers missed out his sides opening game against Uruguay due to injury.

Ahead of Ghana clash, the Portuguese gaffer has disclosed Hwang Hee-Chan will not be available for the crucial game against Ghana.

“I will like to confirm that Hwang Hee-chan will not be available for tomorrow. But for Kim Min Jae, he just recovered today and we will make a decision tomorrow” he said at the pre-match conference.

Korea have one point from the first game and must avoid defeat against the injured West Africans to advance to the knockout stages.

Ghana, on the other hand, are desperate for three points after their controversial loss to Portugal in the opener, and are expected to come out firing against the Koreans.
