Cape Town - Ghana will be hoping to close out their World Cup warm-up schedule with a positive result when they take on South Korea on Monday.

The Black Stars qualified through to Brazil 2014 with relative ease, although they have failed to win any of their international friendlies since seeing off Namibia in January.

Their pre-World Cup schedule saw the African titans go down 1-0 to the Netherlands at the end of May, having previously lost by the same scoreline against Montenegro.

Kwesi Appiah's men will now be hoping to head to South America with a positive result in the bag when they come up against fellow World Cup participants South Korea this week.

The Reds began their warm-up schedule with a convincing 2-0 win over Greece in March, although they went down 1-0 against Tunisia towards the end of last month.

Ghana will be kicking off their World Cup campaign against the United States next Tuesday, while South Korea begin their adventure against Russia 24 hours later.
