Black Stars midfielder, Mohammed Kudus has stated that competing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will play a key role in the development of young players on the Black Stars.
The 22-year-old said this in a press mixed zone in the aftermath of Ghana’s 0-2 loss to Uruguay in the final round of group games at the tournament that effectively ended the Black Stars campaign in Doha.
Kudus starred in Qatar, providing an assist and scoring two goals in three games, and won the Man of the Match award for his brilliant performance in Ghana’s 3-2 win over South Korea.
Despite the disappointing end, Kudus is adamant that competing in the World Cup for the first time will aid the development of several young players in the team.
“Almost 90% of the guys, it’s our first World Cup. I think it’s a big lesson for myself and a lot of the guys and I know this will really make us tough and help our progress and lessons ahead,” he said.
Kudus is set to return to Ajax Amsterdam after his run in Qatar.
