A member of Ghana’s coaching staff controversially took a selfie with a crying Son Heung-min after their 3-2 win over South Korea in Group H. Ghana emerged victorious in a hotly-contested match against South Korea at the Education City Stadium.
After a highly competitive match, the South Korean captain was approached by Ghana’s coaching staff members to offer condolences. However, in a dramatic turn of events, one of the coaching staff members pulled out his smart phone to click a picture with a visibly distraught Son.

Son, who was emotional after the final whistle of the game, was in no mood for a photo and turned in the opposite direction, pulling away from the coaching staff member. Earlier, Son had also shrugged off his coach Paulo Bento after he tried to shake hands with him at the final whistle.
Ghana took the lead as Jordan Ayew’s well-taken free-kick caused all sort of chaos in the Korean box and Mohammad Salisu slotted it home. From then on, the Black stars were in full control of the game and doubled their lead in the 34th minute through Kudus. It was another Jordan Ayew cross that caused all the trouble for the Korean defence and the Ajax star made no mistake in heading it home.
South Korea got back in the game when Cho Gue-sung scored from a headed effort in the 58th minute. Three minutes later, Cho got his second of the game with another bullet header to make it 2-2 as he gave the Ghanian goalkeeper no chance of saving the goal.
Ghana wasn’t ready to be beaten on the day and Kudus made it 3-2 with a brilliantly taken shot in the 68th minut. Ghana held on till the end to claim the win and head on to face Uruguay with the hopes of qualifying for the next round. Korea will now have to beat Portugal in their last match.
