Mohammed Kudus has been honoured by Western Regional Minister Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah for his contribution to the Black Stars at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament for Takoradi, presented the footballer with a Commemorative Gold Coin Medal on behalf of the Ghana Gold Expo.
The 22-year-old Ajax midfielder was Ghana’s best player in his World Cup debut, scoring three goals in three games. He was a standout for Ghana during the World Cup, netting against both Portugal and South Korea.
He became the first black stars player to ever score two goals in a single match, thanks to his remarkable effort in outclassing the Koreans.
Widely recognised as one of the promising stars of the tournament in Qatar, the Ajax midfielder has now been honoured by the Western Regional Minister.
Kudus attended the ceremony with close friends and Black Stars teammates Kamaldeen Sulemana and Ernest Nuamah.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, and Liverpool are said to have scouted and bid for Kudus following his outstanding performance for the Black Stars following the team’s early elimination from the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
