He said, “I don’t want to lie to you, and I don’t want to pretend to support Korea.” I really don’t want to lie.”
Isak praised the performance of the Korean national team and said, “I thought the Korean players did very well, and to be honest, I was very worried that Ghana would win. I support Korea, of course, but when I played against Ghana, I couldn’t allow my blood to be Ghanaian.”
Isak bowed his head, saying, “I’m very sorry for the fans who are disappointed in me because I’m cheering for Ghana,” but in the end, he said, “A game is a game. If there are people who win, there must be people who lose.”
