The news of Ghana’s victory against South Korea has been widely reported since yesterday, and the result seems to have been well received by the general public.
After a thrilling 3-2 win against South Korea on Monday at a sold-out Education City Stadium, the Black Stars kept their World Cup quarterfinal aspirations alive.
Ghana seized the lead against the run of play in the 24th minute when Mohammed Salisu scored from close range after South Korea failed to clear a free kick, and they increased their lead to 2-0 before halftime thanks to a glancing header by Mohammed Kudus.
Two courageous headers from Cho Gue-sung three minutes apart sent South Korea storming back to tie the game.
In the 68th minute, Kudus scored the game-winning goal by finishing coolly past a diving Kim Seung-Gyu from within the penalty area.
Portugal and Ghana both have three points in Group B, with Uruguay and South Korea following with two points each. Ghana’s pre-competition ranking was 61st. Portugal and Uruguay will play each other later on Monday.
