DOHA - Mohammed Kudus scored twice to help Ghana grab a thrilling 3-2 World Cup win over South Korea on Monday.

Mohammed Salisu and Kudus had combined to give Ghana a first-half lead, but two quick second-half headers from Cho Gue-sung looked to have snatched a point for South Korea in the Group H clash. Kudus then stood out to hit the winner for Ghana.

Despite the defeat to Ghana, the South Korean fans could be proud of their team that played another brave game in the World Cup campaign.

South Korea were a better team in the opening phase, but Ghana took the lead in the 24th minute when defender Salisu scored during a chaos inside the box.

Ten minutes later, Kudus headed home following Jordan Ayew's cross.

But the Asian side roared back after the break, pulling level through a quickfire double from forward Cho.

Kudus became the hero for Ghana when he struck his second from close range in the 68th minute, which sealed the victory for the Black Stars.
