Ghana vs South Korea. The Black Stars led by two goals in the first half

The first minutes of the first half saw almost complete control from the Korean national team, led by Paulo Bento, inside the Ghana penalty area, they built attacks that threatened the goal of Lawrence atzig, and almost snatched an early goal. 

After 17 minutes of the first half, the dominance of the Korean national team continued with great possession in front of Ghana, which reached Kim seungyo's goal only once with a weak shot that passed quickly in light of a significant decline in their performance in the meeting.
The South Korean players showed great numerical and offensive intensity as they played in an organized team style, against Ghana, who played more defensively. 

In the 20th minute of the first half, Ghanaian Daniel Amartey received a warning after interfering strongly with Korean national team player Kim Jin-soo and obstructing him violently after he attacked the goal of Lawrence at zig inside the penalty area, which necessitated the referee's decision to issue a yellow card.

Despite the possession of South Korea throughout the half until the 26th minute, the Ghana national team succeeded in snatching the first goal through its player Mohamed Salisu, who proved the VAR correct after the referee returned to him due to doubts about the presence of a hand touch in that game. Still, it was announced that he was counted for the Black Stars. 

It seems that Ghana's goal was the beginning of the brilliance and awakening of the Black Stars players, who succeeded in snatching the second goal in the 34th minute by Ajax Amsterdam player Mohamed Quddous

The South Korean national team tried to restore their balance in the match and return with the first goal, where the Korean Son Hyungmin shot in the 37th minute toward the Ghana goal, but he was infiltrated to fail his attack. 

South Korea's attempts to snatch the first goal before the end of the half failed due to the vigilance of the Ghanaian defenses, despite adding 5 minutes instead of lost time to officially end the half with a score of 2-0 for the Ghanaian national team.
