Premier League ref Anthony Taylor SENDS OFF South Korea manager after full-time as World Cup thriller turns sour | The Sun

November 28, 2022

CHAOS ensued at the end of South Korea's World Cup clash against Ghana as Anthony Taylor sent off Korea manager Paulo Bento.

Taylor sent off Bento after he was left fuming over the decision to not play a corner which Korea had won at the end of the game.

South Korea and Ghana played out a 3-2 thriller after Ghana's Mohammed Kudus scored the winner to thwart a remarkable comeback by the Asia nation.

Ghana entered the half-time break 2-0 ahead before South Korea mustered a remarkable comeback thanks to a brace of headed goals from striker Jo Gue-sung.

Kudus then netted his second of the match to put Ghana back in front.

Son Heung-Min and Co pushed desperately for an equaliser in order to give them the best possible chance of progressing from the group.

However, they were unable to find a breakthrough before Taylor blew his whistle.

This left the Taegeuk Warriors fuming due to them being denied the opportunity to take a corner after seeing the ball deflect out of play off of a Ghana defender.

An angry Bento confronted Taylor at full-time to take the spot of his players.

But his protests fell on deaf ears and instead he was given a red card for his troubles.

Meanwhile, Portugal hung on to beat Ghana in another thrilling contest which saw Cristiano Ronaldo become the first player to ever score at five World Cups.

Should Portugal win later today they will have confirmed their spot in the last 16 and could see them rotate their team, but a loss will make their final group game against Korea a must win.
