South Korea remain on one point in Group H after losing 3-2 to Ghana in their second group game of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
After Ghana raced into a 2-0 lead, Cho Gue-sung scored twice in three second-half minutes to haul South Korea level but they slipped up again when Mohammed Kudus fired in Ghana's winner.
South Korea went in search of an equaliser, with Ati-Zigi turning away substitute Lee Kang-in's free-kick, before Salisu hacked Kim Jin-su's effort off the line.
Furious head coach Paulo Bento was shown a red card by referee Anthony Taylor at the final whistle, and will miss his side's final group game against his home country Portugal.
While Bento admits he remains a proud Portuguese, he is focused on securing the win which will give South Korea a chance of progression to the last 16.
"I do have feelings, of course, in relation to the Korean national anthem but I think I will sing the Portuguese national anthem as well," said Bento, whose last international as a player was in the 1-0 defeat to hosts Korea 20 years ago which ended Portugal's tournament in the group stage.
"I was born Portuguese, I will die Portuguese and I am very proud of my nationality - but also I am very proud of coaching these players for more than four years now."
