Mohammed Salisu and Mohamed Kudus’ goals have helped, the Black Stars of Ghana to seize a sensational 3-2 victory, against South Korea on Monday, November 28, 2022, in Qatar.

Ghana revived hopes of reaching the World Cup knockout stages, for only the second time as they regained the lead after a second-half fightback from South Korea.

The 2010 quarter-finalists impressed and went in front in the 24th minute when defender Mohammed Salisu swept and home Jordan Ayew’s curling free-kick at the 24th minute.

Ghana had another 10 minutes later after Ayew whipped in another superb delivery from the left and it only needed the faintest of touches from the head of Mohammed Kudus to double the Black Stars’ lead at the 34th and 68 minutes each respectively.

But South Korea, who finished fourth at the 2002 finals and began with a useful 0-0 draw against Uruguay, hit back with two headers from Cho Gue-Sung in quick succession to level after the break.
