Their attacking display later opened up the game and with many mistakes in defense, saw Portugal producing two quick goals. 3- I it turned after 78 minutes.

It seemed over for Ghana after the collapse but a spirited fight produced another goal out of nowhere raising their hopesfor an equalizer. The black stars got close in the dying minutes of extra time when the Portguese goalie almost gifted the ball in what could have been a costly slip. Inaki Williams however slips at the crucial moment.

3- 2 it ended for the Portuguese after the thriller. The black stars will have to salvage key points from South Korea in their next group H matches.
