"It was a great experience, I really loved that and it was a good experience."

Rahman faced the likes of Ronaldo and Son Heung-min in Group H, helping Ghana beat the latter's South Korean team.

"That is what the World Cup is meant for; you have to play against the best players in the world. It was a nice experience. I played against Son several times during our time in Germany," he added.

The 28-year-old is expected to line up for Reading in their game against Coventry on Saturday.

Rahman shares moment with son

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Black Stars defender Rahman celebrated Ghana defeating South Korea with his son, at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.

The Reading FC left-back was a second-half substitute, as the Black Stars defeated the Tigers of Asia in a thrilling encounter on Monday.

Rahman replaced injured Gideon Mensah late into the game, stopping the threat of South Korea's attack from the right.

Baba Rahman joins Reading

Sports Brief also reported on Ghana defender Rahman joining Reading FC in the Championship, on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Rahman joined the Blues in 2015 and has had little chance to impress at Stamford Bridge, and has spent most of his time on loan.

It was expected the left-back would move out on loan again this season, after he was left out of Chelsea's League and Champions League squads.
