The Black Stars' victory against South Korea at the Education City Stadium reignited Africa's hopes in the World Cup which is currently being played in Qatar.

Following a 3-2 loss against Portugal in their opening game, the Stars from Ghana needed a win in their second match to have any hopes of progressing to the second stage of the competition.

And they indeed did just that. Two goals from Ajax midfielder, Muhammed Kudus and one from Mohammed Salisu opened up Group H with a winner take all tie against Uruguay.

While fans are still basking from the victory against South Korea, others especially Nigerians have celebrated the team's second goal which many describe as the "best team goal".

GhanaWeb said Ghana exhibited total football, swinging a 31-passing sequence, playing out from the back with 10 out of the eleven players having a touch before Kudus Mohammed put the ball in the net with a brilliant header.

The move was started by goalkeeper Lawrence Ati-Zigi who passed it short to Mohammed Salisu to begin the sequence.

Thomas Partey, Salis Samed, and Daniel Amartey had the most touches of the ball during the play with Jordan Ayew setting up the goal with a lovely cross.
