World Cup 2022: Ghana defeats South Korea after a stunning match

After this victory in the forceps (3-2), Monday, the Black Stars will play their place in the last 16 against Uruguay.

A crazy scenario. Ghana has won against South Korea (3-2), Monday, November 28, for the second day of the group stage of the 2022 World Cup.

The Black Stars were first beaten in Al Rayyan, but quickly scored against the run of play, through Mohammed Salisu (23rd), after an indirect free kick of Jordan Ayew. The former Marseille player was on the bench for Ghana’s 3-2 loss to Portugal, but he was decisive ten minutes later when he crossed for Mohammed Kudus to head in (34th).

Tension until the last second
Just as Otto Addo’s men looked set to score the goal of chaos, the Koreans rallied with back-to-back goals from Gue-sung Cho (58′, 61′). The Taeguk Warriors then went on the attack again without covering their backs, allowing Mohammed Kudus (68th) to give his side the lead for good.

In the wake of a prolific Cameroon-Serbia (3-3), this spectacular victory (3-2) allows Ghana to provisionally move up to the second place in Group H, before Portugal-Uruguay at 8 pm. Against the Celeste on Friday, the Black Stars will have the opportunity to validate their ticket to the last 16, in a remake of the terrible quarter-final of the 2010 World Cup, which deprived the partners of Andre Ayew of the last four. For the South Koreans, all is not lost, but Paulo Bento and his troops will have to win against Portugal in the last game. A match that the Portuguese technician will follow from the stands, after being expelled after the final whistle, given before a final corner for the South Koreans.
