On Monday afternoon, Ghana beat South Korea, 3-2, in their Group H second round match – as Portugal and Uruguay, who will play from 7 pm – of the Qatar World Cup, which was held at the Education City Stadium in Doha.

The result that leaves the Asian team, coached by the Portuguese Paulo Bento, almost completely away from the round of 16 of the competition: only beating Portugal, on Friday, December 2, in the last meeting, will allow the Asians to continue. To dream of getting to the next stage, and even that is not liquid: they may still need a favorable set of results, either in Portugal and Uruguay today or in Uruguay and Ghana on Friday, to still sustain faint hopes going forward. in the exam.

A game in which the style and speed of the Ghanaians, after an impressive initial pressure and the dominance of the South Koreans, dictated the rules, and in which the fragility of the Asians appeared in the air, to the imbalance of the first half: two positions. From the left, Salisu (24) and Mohamed Kodos (34) gave the Africans a 2-0 lead at the end of a first half in which South Korea were much faster and had dominated until then.

Paulo Bento released Kang-in Lee in the second half and the change had its effects: it was his heart that made Cho Kyu-sung’s goal 1-2 in the 58th minute, the forward ‘refining’ came on for South Korea three minutes later. (61′) for a 2-2. But Mohamed Kodos also took advantage of Mensah’s left pass shortly thereafter to make the final 2-3 (68′).

A crazy game, in which both teams gave everything they had in the last minutes and against that, one of the most emotional matches of this World Cup in Qatar, which left the team led by Otto Addo – the athlete did not use Fatau, it was sitting on the substitute bench – relaunched in the race On one of the two places in this group H for the round of 16, now with three points.

South Korea sees its hopes of making the top 16 of the competition disappear almost impossible, even before the match with Portugal. We will see, on Friday, if this will relieve the pressure on the Asians or, on the contrary, lead them to a more determined performance against Portugal, in the farewell of the Asians from this Group Eight, which could also be good. Be the choice coached by Paulo Bento for this World Cup.

Ghana had three shots on target… They scored three goals: extreme effectiveness, speed and style of their players dictated the laws. But he had to suffer at the start and react strongly to everything from the South Koreans, who put eight units (!) In the opponent’s large area, at the all-or-nothing stage. Unsuccessful. Tons of goals, football and passion to feast your eyes on… ahead of Portugal and Uruguay.

Paulo Bento annoyed: After the “yellow” in the Uruguay match, this time, after the final whistle, he saw the direct red card by English referee Anthony Taylor, to protest. Nor should he be on the bench on Friday, against Portugal, when he will have to comply with a ban for at least one match.
