Ghana beats Chile in extra time

Ebenezer Assifuah scored his second goal in the closing minutes of extra time as Ghana beat Chile 4-3 to reach the semifinals of the Under-20 World Cup on Sunday.

Assifuah’s header completed Ghana’s comeback after Angelo Henriquez put Chile 3-2 up in the eighth minute of extra time. Seidu Salifu equalized in the 113th. Both teams were locked at 2-2 in regulation.

The only African nation to win the event, in 2009, Ghana will next play France while Iraq takes on Uruguay in the other semifinal.

Earlier Sunday, Iraq conceded the lead three times to draw 3-3 with South Korea before winning a penalty shootout.
