It was the much-needed win for Ghanaians who were largely sitting on tenterhooks for the final quarter of the game.
And from the reactions, after the South Koreans netted a quickfire double between the 58th and 61st minutes, something had to definitely happen.
Kudus rose to the occasion, found himself at the end of a Gideon Mensah cross and curled the ball past the goalkeeper to restore Ghana’s lead and eventually sealed the game for Black Stars.
The 68th-minute winner triggered a thunderous celebration across the country and on social media.
Despite late attempts from the Koreans, the game ended 3-2 with Ghana earning a vital win in Group H.
The jubilation started right from Ghana’s legislative arm where the Speaker, Alban Bagbin was caught on camera dancing to one of the goals on the day from his office.
The ecstatic Speaker punched the air while clad in his Black Star jersey in the company of other officials of the House.
