Southampton have reacted to Ghana defender Mohammed Salisu’s performance after he scored his first World Cup goal as the Black Stars overcame South Korea.
The Southampton center-back scored the opening goal as the West African nation won 3-2 at the Education City stadium in Al Rayyan.
The Black Stars finished second in Group H thanks to a brace from Mohammed Kudus and a double from South Korean Cho Gue-sung.
Southampton celebrated their centre-back, who became the first Ghanaian defender to score at the World Cup, on social media following the game.
“What a performance. Sensational, Sali,” wrote the Saints on Twitter.
Salisu was making his fourth appearance for Ghana, having made his debut in a friendly against Brazil in September.
On Friday, the Black Stars will meet two-time world champions Uruguay.
