In what can be called outstanding performance, Ghana managed to stave off a South Korea comeback to claim their first win at the 2022 World Cup.
Paulo Bento’s men came from two goals down to draw level in a thrilling second half, before Otto Addo’s side edged themselves back in front and weathered one hell of a storm to take the three points.
While commenting on the performance, the coach said: It was the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup that a team like Ghana has been able to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament,”
“The team has been able to get a good result in the last two years, but it’s not going to be easy. It’s a good thing we’re not going to be able to play in the World Cup,” he said. “We’re not going to be able to play in the World Cup,” he added.
The first half of the opening 45 was dominated by South Korea, who managed to completely pen Ghana in and rack up a staggering seven corners, but were unable to carve out too many clear openings.

A Mohammed Kudus brace helped Ghana beat South Korea 3-2 in a thrilling match to revive their hopes of reaching the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup at Doha’s Education City Stadium on Monday.
It was the first time that the Black Stars had taken a 2-0 lead at the break, with Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus scoring the second. But Cho Gue-sung gave the South Koreans hope with a brace (58th, 61st), before Kudus followed suit to restore Ghana’s lead (68th).

The South Koreans were not to be denied, however, as Son Heung-min and his team-mates began to attack the goal in the opening minutes of the lively but fruitless match against Uruguay. But the six corners the South Koreans won in twenty minutes did not allow them to open the score against the Black Stars’ defence, which was not very reassuring.
