Mohammed Kudus’ goal against Egypt in the ongoing 2023 AFCON match between the Black Stars and Egypt has left Ghanaian legend Asamoah Gyan in awe of the midfielder.
On the stroke of halftime, the West Ham forward gave Chris Hughton’s team a well-earned lead with a long-range goal.
Abdul Salis Samed found Kudus on the edge of the box. Kudus dribbled the ball to his left to open up some space, then unleashed a powerful shot into the net.
Gyan praised Kudus on Twitter for his goal, even though there are still 45 minutes remaining. The goal gave Ghana a narrow lead at the interval.
With 51 goals, the 37-year-old is currently Ghana’s all-time best scorer and added Kudus is the kind of guy we can call quality.
“This is what we call Quality. Kudussssssss,” Gyan wrote on microbloggoing site X (formerly known as Twitter)
Mohamed Salah suffered an injury during the match against Ghana, which dealt a setback to Egypt as well.
Before the half, the Liverpool forward was replaced after it appeared that he had twisted his leg in a challenge.
