FIFA names top English referee to handle Ghana and South Korea clash on Monday

English referee, Anthony Taylor has been appointed to officiate Ghana and South Korea clash in Group H on Monday.

The Black Stars after a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Portugal on Thursday will hope to redeem themselves against the Asian side who drew goalless with Uruguay in their opening fixture.

Following Ronaldo’s penalty, Joao Felix and Rafael Leao struck either side of Andre Ayew’s response before Osman Bukari reduced the deficit further, and the howler of the tournament award very nearly went to Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa, who rolled the ball out without knowing that Inaki Williams was behind him.

On Monday, the top English referee will be assisted by his compatriots, Gary Beswick, Adam Nunn and Kevin Ortega from Austria.

The clash will mark the 10th meeting between South Korea and Ghana in all competitions, with the last six yielding three wins apiece for both nations, but Ghana ran out convincing 4-0 winners during the most recent battle in a 2014 friendly.
