Match Review

China v Ghana 3-1 (2-1)

In the second match of the 9-16 play-offs, Ghana faced China, and the African team proceeded to put down an excellent start into the encounter, playing well, and soon scoring their first goal of the event through Gloria Darko.

The goal jolted the Chinese awake however, and the Ghanaians' joy was short-lived as Zhang Jinrong sunk the equalizer for China within less than two minutes. Ou Zixia piled on a second goal just before the break for a a 2-1 halftime lead for China.

After the break, only one more goal was scored as Zhang Xindan put away China's third, while the rest of the half was filled with listless banter and ineffective back and forth from both sides without many scenes in front of the goals. China thus took victory, and move into the classification matches for 9th to 12th place, while Ghana join Canada in the 13-16 bracket.
