December 3, 2022 (Jack87 News) – Last night, BK8 Group H of the 2022 World Cup kick off with the intense battle between South Korea and Portugal. This is a rather unfortunate event for Cristiano Ronaldo because of two things, first his team Portugal lost their last game in this round and second he assisted the opposing team, South Korea to beat them with a score of 2-1. After the game, despite losing, Portugal still locked the top spot and qualify along with South Korea, whom he helped claim the second place in their group.

This turn of events did not just happen today. The two teams have played against each other once in history. That was in the 2002 World Cup when South Korea, as the host, beat Portugal 1-0. It was in this game that allowed South Korea to successfully advance from the group stage, while Portugal was eliminated after the group stage.

In the first minutes of the game, Portugal seems to be attacking aggressively with Pepe and Dalot exchanging balls in the backcourt and passing near the bottom line. Horta then joined in by following up with a volley in front of the small penalty area and score to give Portugal an early advantage against South Korea, Bet99 1-0.

More energetic moves come out of the Portuguese after the first goal, but then in a while, an extraordinary thing happened. When the South Korean took a left corner kick, the ball hit Cristiano Ronaldo in the back and the ball bounced into the small penalty area. South Korea equalized the score 1-1 courtesy of Ronaldo.

In the 81st minute mark, South Korea made substitutions and adjustments. As the game continues, South Korea kicked a right corner kick into the penalty area and was cleared by a Portuguese player. After ten minutes or so, with a counterattack, Son Heung-min dribbled the ball to the middle of the frontcourt, and through a pass in front of the penalty area, Boda8 Huang Xican made a successful shot from the middle of the penalty area, South Korea surpassed the score of the opposing team. At the end of the game, South Korea reversed Portugal 2-1 and won. Both teams qualified to the top sixteen of the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
