Ghana’s World Cup opponents USA will play South Korea in a friendly on Saturday to prepare for  this year’s FIFA World Cup to be held in Brazil.

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann is expected to give fringe players a look in as he continues in his quest to present a formidable squad.

They are in discussions for a friendly in April, possibly against Mexico.

US are also scheduled for three send-off friendlies prior to the team’s departure for Brazil, including the match at Red Bull Arena, with the final game in Florida before the team’s departure to Brazil on June 7.

Klinsmann camped in São Paulo with a squad that includes 25 of its 26 players coming from MLS rosters.

The USA will begin their Group G campaign against Ghana in Natal on 16 June.

    I watched South Korea last night against Mexico in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The Koreans looked weak, as they were hammered 4-0. Their defense is very porous.
