A couple of tweets before we end this one.

20:36 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Coming back to the game, South Korea attacked for the first 20 minutes but nothing came out of that. Then Ghana took control and scored twice to go in at half-time with a healthy lead. But South Korea hit back twice in 3 minutes through Gue-Sung Cho's headers which sparked life into their attempt to come back. But eventually Mohammed Kudus' goal proved to be the winner for Ghana despite South Korea dominating the last 20 minutes. Ghana held on resolutely and put their bodies on the line to eke out their first win. South Korea meanwhile are bottom of the group with just 1 point and they face Portugal next.

20:32 (IST)28 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! South Korea 2 Ghana 3. A game for the ages ends in a bit of a sour note. A red card is shown to the South Korean manager after he protests Anthony Taylor's decision to blow the whistle after 10:54. The reason South Korea are arguing is because they got a corner but the referee decided to blow the whistle. Dramatic scenes at the end of a marvellous game.

20:31 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Kang-In Lee on the right cuts in on his left but blazes his shot over the bar. 

20:28 (IST)28 NOV 2022

It is all South Korea at the moment. Desperate keeping from Ati-Zigi as he punches with a Korean attacker lurking to nod in from a couple of yards. A break in play after that as a Ghanian man needs medical attention.

20:26 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Another good save by Ati-Zigi as he punches away a fierce shot from Gue-Sung Cho who cut in on his left and tried to beat the keeper on his near-post.

20:21 (IST)28 NOV 2022

10 minutes of added time. As if the drama in this game was not enough already.

20:19 (IST)28 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Ghana (3) and Cameroon (3) have scored a combined total of six goals today, the most ever for Africa on a single day at the World Cup.

20:15 (IST)28 NOV 2022

A great chance for Heung-Min Son inside the box but he kicks the air instead of the ball and the left-back blazes over as the ball comes to him. This game keeps giving.

20:12 (IST)28 NOV 2022

South Korea too make a change: Hwang Ui-Jo replaced Jung Woo-Young.

20:12 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Triple substitution for Ghana: Kamaldeen Sulemare, Denis Odoi, Daniel Kofi-Kyereh are on. The Ayew brothers and Tariq Lamptey are off.

20:08 (IST)28 NOV 2022

South Korea come again and a skewed effort is saved off the line by a Ghanian defender. The game's on fire and burning brightly.

20:07 (IST)28 NOV 2022

This is some game. South Korea get a free-kick 30 yards just to the right of centre. Kang-In Lee takes it and it's nestling into the bottom corner when Lawrence Ati-Zigi dives to push it away. It was going in.

19:59 (IST)28 NOV 2022

GOAL! Mohammed Kudus in the 69th minute! South Korea 2 Ghana 3. Wow! Just wow! Now Ghana are in dollops of joy. A cross from the left is missed by Inaki Williams in the middle but the ball goes to Kudus who strikes a left-footed shot sweetly and under the dive. Turn of the Ghanians to celebrate and South Koreans to despair.

19:53 (IST)28 NOV 2022

GOAL! Gue-Sung Cho in the 61st minute! South Korea 2 Ghana 2. Wow! Absolute bedlam now inside the stadium as South Korea level. Again it's down the left which causes Ghana trouble as Kim Jin-Su goes to the byline and floats a perfect cross invitingly to the middle, Gue wants it more as he jumps on the back of two centre-halves and powers the header home. Manic scenes and the game is on fire.

19:49 (IST)28 NOV 2022

GOAL! Gue-Sung Cho in the 58th minute! South Korea 1 Ghana 2. Lee Kang-In nicks the ball on the left and delivers a quality ball into the box and Gue gets in ahead of his man to head home. That was all about the ball from Lee and Gue this time has his goal. Suddenly the place has come alive as the South Koreans go mad.

19:43 (IST)28 NOV 2022

What a save that is from Lawrence Ati-Zigi as Gue-Sung Cho strains his neck muscles to direct the header towards the near-post but the goalie is there to punch away.

19:41 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Tariq Lamptey gets the ball, spins one way and the other before curling the ball wide of the far-post. That was a good piece of play.

19:36 (IST)28 NOV 2022

Second half begins.

19:21 (IST)28 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! South Korea 0 Ghana 2. After all the pressure from South Korea was neutralised, Ghana came on the attack and scored twice to put themselves in a good position at half-time. Ghana well in control at the break.

19:21 (IST)28 NOV 2022

A late corner and Ghana almost get a third but Partey shoulders the ball wide with the keeper beaten.

19:05 (IST)28 NOV 2022

GOAL! Mohammed Kudus in the 34th minute! South Korea 0 Ghana 2. Jordan Ayew from the left delivers a peach of a cross and it's so easy for Kudus from close range to nod home past the goalkeeper. A beautifully weighted ball which gave the keeper no chance. Ghana double their lead.

19:01 (IST)28 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Ghana have scored the opening goal in a World Cup match for the first time since their quarter-final match against Uruguay in 2010.

18:56 (IST)28 NOV 2022

GOAL! Mohammed Salisu in the 23rd minute! South Korea 0 Ghana 1. VAR are checking though. The goal stands though. Against the run of play Ghana score from a free-kick. It hits the hand of Andre Ayew's hand and then falls to Salisu who turns it home from very close range. VAR has a look and decides the handball was not intentional.

18:53 (IST)28 NOV 2022

YELLOW CARD to Ghana's Daniel Amartey for swinging an arm across Gue-Sung Cho.

18:49 (IST)28 NOV 2022

South Korea keep attacking but still nothing to show for in terms of a real chance.

18:39 (IST)28 NOV 2022

South Korea have started on the front foot but Ghana clear a couple of corners as the pressure is piled on.

18:31 (IST)28 NOV 2022

South Korea managed to hold Uruguay to a goalless draw in their opening game. Without a doubt, that is a commendable effort from the Asian giants.

Ghana managed to score twice, but were beaten 3-2 in the end by Portugal. That defeat makes this game hugely important for the Black Stars, another loss and they're out of the tournament!
