Coach Otto Addo became the first Ghanaian coach to win a match at the World Cup after leading Ghana to victory over South Korea in their team’s second encounter of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ratomir Dukovic and Milovan Rajevac, both Serbian coaches, led the Black Stars to two victories each in 2006 and 2010 to give Ghana its previous four World Cup victories.
At the 2006 World Cup, Ratomir Dukovic led Ghana to victory over the Czech Republic and the United States, and at the 2010 World Cup, Milovan Rajevac led Ghana to victory over Serbia and the United States.
At the 2014 World Cup, coach Kwesi Appiah, who was the first Ghanaian to lead Ghana to a World Cup competition, failed to win a single game.
In addition to being Ghana’s first victory under a Ghanaian coach, this World Cup match saw Ghana score three goals for the first time ever.
Ghana beat their counterparts from South Korea in a thrilling 3-2 encounter that saw Mohammed Kudus scoring a brace to keep the Black Stars thriving in the tournament after they narrowly lost their first game against Cristiano Ronaldo’s led Portugal.
