Day 9 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is here. So far, Monday has been goals day at the World Cup. It all began with an exciting and eventful clash between Cameroon and Serbia. The match ended 3-3 after Cameroon scored the opening goal but then at the end of the first half Serbia managed to overturn the result and scored twice in less than three minutes. It seemed to be over for Cameroon after Serbia scored the third goal with Aleksandar Mitrovic at the beginning of the second half, but the African side scored two goals with Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Despite both sides tried to win the game it ended 3-3 and this gives to Brazil and Switzerland a big opportunity later today.
Later, South Korea and Ghana set the tone for Group H with a five goal thriller as Ghana won the game 3-2. South Korea opened the game up with lots of possession and earned seven corners in the first half, but Ghana struck twice with goals by Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus for a lead at halftime. A strong counter pressing attack by South Korea in the second half led to two goals to make things level, both from Cho Gue-sung. But the game winner came from Ghana as Kudus recorded his second in the match to secure all three points for the African side.
At 2 p.m. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will play against Uruguay in a fascinating clash between two sides with lots of history in this competition. Brazil will have to play against Switzerland without Neymar, who is out injured and will miss at least this second game of the competition. This game will take place at 11 a.m. ET.
