Kudus ‘magic’ gives Ghana important brace to secure crucial 3-2 win against South Korea

A sensational brace from Mohammed Kudus on Monday afternoon proved crucial as Ghana cruised past South Korea with an important 3-2 win in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The West African country today locked horns with the Asians in a second Group H match of this year’s mundial.

Although the South Koreans will dominate the play in the early parts of the game, Ghana managed the pressure and eventually took control of the game.

Doing better in the attacking sequence, the Black Stars took the lead in the 24th minute when defender Mohammed Salisu capitalised on a scramble in the opponent’s box to get the ball in the back of the net.

With that lead, Ghana continued to see more of the possession and made it count 10 minutes later.

This time around, Mohammed Kudus jumped high to head a cross from Jordan Ayew to double the lead for the Black Stars.

While Ghana will take the two-goal lead into the break, South Korea made a strong comeback in the second half as a brace from Gue-sung Cho in the 58th and 61st minutes restored parity to the game.

Despite losing confidence after squandering the comfortable lead, Ghana gradually found its mojo and made it count.

In the 68th minute, poster boy Mohammed Kudus latched onto a pass from Gideon Mensah and smashed a low drive that ended up in the back of the South Korea net.

Despite the late pressure from South Korea, Ghana held on to win 3-2 to bag the maximum three points.
