45+5′: Ghana almost made it 3-0!

The Black Stars nearly had a third goal before the end of the first half thanks to a well-placed corner kick from Ayew (who else) but South Korea keeper Kim Seung Gyu was just barely able to punch the ball out of play.

53′: What a save!

Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Ghana’s third goalkeeper who got the start Monday due to injuries to the two keepers in front of him, made a great leaping save to keep South Korea out of the back of the net.

58′: South Korea is back in it!

Korea’s turn for a gorgeous looping cross courtesy of Lee Kang-in, just in as a substitute. The pass found Cho Gue-sung for a header to knock past Ati-Zigi and give South Korea some life.

FOX Sports analyst Landon Donovan said it best — it’s the World Cup. It’s a party! And Kudus added to the party with his second goal of the match to put Ghana back on top.
