Ghana produced a brilliant attacking performance to beat South Korea 3-2 at the Education City Stadium in Doha, Qatar. Southampton star Mohammed Salisu and Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus gave the West African country the lead before South Korea fought back in their FIFA World Cup encounter.

Two stunning headers in three minutes from Cho Gue-sung provided South Korea a fighting chance before Mohammed Kudus gave Ghana the winner midway through the second half.

In a game filled with twists and turns, here are some of the moments you might have missed from the game or just might not have seen on television:

Every South Korea player on the was on the field at half time

South Korean players who were on the bench were sent off to warm up straight away after the referee blew his whistle for the first half. Normally just a few are sent out to warm up in anticipation of a tactical twist, but that was not the case as all of them were sent to be put through their paces. They stayed on the pitch warming up until almost the second half.

Party in the stadium at half time

It was absolute pandemonium in the stadium, with the DJ rocking Ghanaian music all throughout the ground. Ghanaians are known for their parties and there was no stopping them as they started the party after too.

Scuffle between the Ghana bench and the Korean bench

As the minutes ran Ghanaian left Gideon Mensah hit the deck as he was unable to even move his leg. The Koreans thought he was wasting time and charged towards the Ghana bench, which resulted in a small scuffle which was swifly wound down, before a substitution was made by the West African country.

South Korea bow to the fans despite defeat

In South Korea bowing to someone is a sign of respect. Despite the disappointing nature of the defeat, they went straight to their fans to thank all of them before slowly walking away into the dugout with heads down.

The Ghanaian fans though stayed on for while singing and dancing before security had to usher them out of the stadium.

Ghana players turn dressing room into party

The Ghana dressing room was turned into a party and you could hear the music even from the mixed zone. This is their first win in the competition and that gives them a fighting chance at progressing from the group.

Coincidentally, the win has paved the way for a titanic clash between them and Uruguay - the same country that denied them a spot at the last of the World Cup in 2010, with Luis Suarez infamous hand-ball on the goal line before the resulting penalty was missed. 12 years is a long time to wait for revenge, and Ghana are ready for it.
