Black Meteors suffer 15-2 aggregate defeat on Asian tour
Ghana’s Black Meteors wrapped up their international friendlies in Asia with a 2-1 defeat to South Korea on Tuesday morning at the Jeju World Cup Stadium.
The South Korea U24 team hosted the Meteors in the second match played between the two sides.
The Koreans dominated the game which saw them missing several goal-scoring opportunities and it seemed the first half of the game was going to end goalless. But Ghana’s resolute defence was broken on the stroke of halftime after Jeong Wooyeong shot the Asian side into the lead.
Joselpho Barnes drew level for the Black Meteors in the 53rd minute before South Korea took the lead again in the 65th minute through Lee Donjun.
The Black Meteors were in Japan a week ago where they suffered a 10-0 aggregate defeat in the two-fixture games before losing to South Korea 3-1 on Saturday and 2-1 in the final game this morning.
The Asian counterparts used these games as preparations for the upcoming Olympic Games to be held in Japan.
However, Ghana failed to qualify for the upcoming Olympic Games and thus used these matches to prepare for the next African Games scheduled to place in Accra in 2023.
The team is expected to return to Ghana later this week.
