For 10 minutes Monday, South Korea sent desperate cross after desperate cross toward the goal. And for those seemingly endless 10 minutes of second-half stoppage time, Ghana batted each one away with heads, feet, whatever legal appendage was available at the time. The end result was a 3-2 Ghana victory after a manic 90-plus minutes of World Cup soccer in Doha, Qatar.
Ghana looked to be in full control of the Group H game after two first-half goals, but Cho Gue-sung got South Korea back to level with two headed-in goals within three minutes of each other early in the second half. Ghana would take the lead for good just seven minutes after Cho’s second goal, however, with Mohammed Kudus striking in a cross for his second goal of the game.
