It was an end to end action at the Education City stadium in Qatar as the Black Stars of Ghana narrowly triumphed over the Asian Tigers in the second game in Group H.
The Black Stars needed all three points against South Korea after losing their first game against Portugal last Thursday. In a pulsating and an unpredictable game, Ghana finally picked all three points against South Korea by beating them 3-2.
Black Stars started on a high note in the hope to break the deadlock of the game. It did not take long as Southampton FC’s defender, Mohammed Salisu recorded his first competitive goal for the Black Stars in the 24th minute after Jordan Ayew orchestrated a free kick.
10 minutes later, Mohammed Kudus doubled the lead for the Ghanians after connecting with a Jordan Ayew cross. The first half of the game ended with Ghana leading.
Gue-Sung Cho scored a consolation goal for the Koreans in the 58th minute and later restored parity three minutes later with all the goals being headers. The joy of the South Koreans was short lived after Mohammed Kudus scored his second and the third goal for Ghana in the 68th minute to give Ghana all the three points.
South Korea created a lot of chances in the dying embers of the game but Ghana were resolute in defense to deny them.
