World Cup: Portugal Beat Ghana 3-2
The Black Stars of Ghana suffered a 3-2 loss to Portugal in their opening game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ghana were massive underdogs going into the tie, but they were looking to follow the path of Saudi Arabia and Japan who upset big boys Argentina and Germany.
Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal in front in the 65th minute from the spot, becoming the first player to score in five different world cups.
But Portugal’s lead did not last, as Andre Ayew drew Ghana level eight minutes later.
Unfortunately, Ghana lost concentration in the final quarter, and Portugal took advantage, with Joao Felix and Rafael Leao scoring in the 78th and 80th minutes.
Osman Bukari pulled one back for Ghana in the 89th minute, but Portugal held on to see out the 3-2 result.
Following the result, fans have come out to praise the Black Stars, whilst juxtaposing them with the Super Eagles, who suffered a 4-0 drubbing against Portugal last week.
The Super Eagles were shambolic against Portugal last week, but Ghana proved their mettle, giving Portugal a run for their money.
