In Ghana’s second game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Black Stars defeated South Korea, and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has congratulated them on their success.
In their second group encounter on Monday, the Black Stars defeated South Korea 3–2 thanks to a brace from Mohammed Kudos.
The other goal in the thrilling game at the Education City stadium was scored by Mohammed Salisu.
The President said that although it was battled for, the victory was well-earned.
“Kudos to the Black Stars. Hard fought, but thoroughly well-deserved victory against South Korea. Proud of the entire team and the unalloyed support given to them by all Ghanaians. Now to the final game against Uruguay,” Nana Akufo-Addo wrote in a Facebook post.
Otto Addo’s team earned all three points despite a brief comeback by the South Koreans in the second half to keep them in contention for a Round of 16 spot.
The Black Stars needed to win against the Koreans in order to avoid an early tournament exit after their loss to Portugal on the opening day.
The fact that the South Koreans dominated the first few minutes of the game indicates that this was on the players’ minds.
