World Cup 2022 LIVE: South Korea vs Ghana latest score, goals and updates from Qatar – Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus put Ghana in control

Fifa World Cup: Results and reaction from day eigh

South Korea and Ghana meet in Group H of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar today.

Each side is seeking a first win at this unique winter edition of the tournament, with South Korea having held Uruguay to a promising 0-0 draw in their opening game, while Ghana put in a spirited performance as they came up narrowly short against Portugal, who emerged 3-2 victors over the Black Stars.

A win here for South Korea, at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan, would put them in a strong position to qualify for the knockouts, with a tie against Portugal to come. Meanwhile, Ghana have more work to do but would keep themselves in with a shot at advancing if they were to win today. Of course, the outcome of the day’s other Group H game between Portugal and Uruguay will also have an impact on the prospects of South Korea and Ghana.

Andre Ayew and Osman Bukari were the goalscorers for Ghana in their defeat by Portugal, while Tottenham star Son Heung-min is South Korea’s greatest asset.

Show latest update


World Cup 2022: Ghana 2-0 South Korea

45 mins: South Korea are pushing on but not creating anything clear-cut. A cross from the right is overhit and Jung Woo-young then takes a speculative shot from 25 yards that flies well over. Son looks disgusted that he wasn’t passed the ball there by Jung and, to be fair, he was in a better position.

5 minutes of added time at the end of this half.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 2-0 South Korea

43 mins: Son makes a solo counter-attack for South Korea down the left. He’s scored in similar fashion for Spurs before but this time he can only win a throw-in as he’s shepherded wide by the defence.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 2-0 South Korea

39 mins: Nice interplay by South Korea around the edge of the Ghana box but there’s no killer ball at the moment. Kim Jin-su then puts a cross in but it’s headed away comfortably.

Ghana will be delighted if they can get to half-time 2-0 ahead.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 2-0 South Korea (GOAL! Kudus 34’)

And Kudus makes it two! It’s been coming, to be fair.

Another superb delivery in from the left flank by Jordan Ayew as he curls a dangerous ball into the perfect area and all Kudus has to do is caress the ball goalwards with his head and the net bulges. Stunning delivery, nicely finished.

Ghana in complete control here.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 1-0 South Korea

32 mins: Good work by Inaki Williams to get into the box but he holds on to the ball too long and goes down to try and win a penalty but nothing doing. Jordan Ayew looks frustrated that Williams didn’t square the ball to him

World Cup 2022: Ghana 1-0 South Korea

28 mins: A yellow card for Korea now as Jung Woo-young drags down Mohammed Kudus. the free-kick is decent but defended well.

A goal against the run of play but Ghana continuing the theme of African teams showing well at this World Cup.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 1-0 South Korea ( GOAL! Salisu ‘24)

Fair to say that’s against the run of play but Ghana lead! Nicely-worked free-kick from the left touchline as Jordan Ayew whips it right into the danger area.

It bounces off a couple of Ghana heads and appears to hit Andrew Ayew’s arm before Salisu lashes in from close-range. The goal is awarded but VAR will take a look at this… AND IT STANDS! WOW!

It was clearly accidental handball but did lead directly to the goal. VAR decides not to rule it out though.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 0-0 South Korea

21 mins: Daniel Amartey the first man into the referee’s book as he gets yellow-carded for catching Cho Gue-sung with a flailing arm. The Leicester man looks apoplectic that he’s been booked and while Cho did make a lot of it, Amartey brought it on himself somewhat.

World Cup 2022: Ghana 0-0 South Korea

18 mins: The be-masked Son Heung-min whips it in, out for another corner. The deliveries haven’t been great and the next is easily cleared by Ghana. Son then goes for a spectacular overhead kick from the ball back in but misses completely. Superb!

In more serious matters, Ghana really need to have a spell of possession here.
