Ghana overcome a second-half comeback from South Korea in the second goal-heavy thriller of the day.
Ghana won their Group H match despite a spirited South Korean comeback, defeating their opponents 3-2 on what has been the most exciting day of the 2022 World cup so far.
Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus gave Ghana a two-nil first-half lead on Monday at Education City Stadium, as they brushed aside some early pressure from South Korea.
South Korea fought back in the second half with two headers from Guesung Cho as they threatened to cause another incredible World Cup comeback.
However, Ghana were able to rely once again on Kudus, who popped up to drive a sidefooted effort in the corner in the 68th minute.
South Korea applied some heavy pressure in the final minutes, peppering the Ghanaian goal with dangerous crosses, but they could not find an equaliser.
