In a reassuring update from the Ghana Football Association, Communications Director Henry Asante Twum has confirmed that midfielder Mohammed Kudus is on track to be fit for Ghana’s second group game against Egypt at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Black Stars are set to face the Pharaohs in a crucial encounter as they seek redemption from their opening-day defeat to Cape Verde.
Kudus, a key player for the team, was absent from the initial match due to a ‘slight knock’ that he picked up while on international duty.

Speaking on Joy News’ PM Express, Asante Twum shed light on Kudus’s rehabilitation progress, stating, “Normally what he does is that after the first 15-20 minutes of training, he joins the physios for his personal training outside of the group.”
Fortunately, there’s good news as Asante Twum revealed, “Luckily, today [Monday] he trained with the rest of the squad.
He stayed in the group training for the whole period.
The medical team is still assessing him. He is back in full team training, and I am sure by Wednesday or Thursday he will be fine for that match.”
The optimism surrounding Kudus’s recovery is crucial for the Black Stars, who must avoid defeat against Egypt to enhance their chances of progressing to the next stage of the competition.
