Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus gave Ghana a two-nil first-half lead on Monday at Education City Stadium, as they brushed aside some early pressure from South Korea.

South Korea fought back in the second half with two headers from Cho Guesung as they threatened to cause another incredible World Cup comeback.

However, Ghana were able to rely on Kudus once again, who popped up to drive a sidefooted effort in the corner in the 68th minute.

South Korea applied some heavy pressure in the final minutes, peppering the Ghanaian goal with dangerous crosses, but they could not find an equaliser.

Earlier in the day, Cameroon and Serbia shared points in an exhilarating 3-3 draw.
