The black stars of Ghana successfully booked African cup of nations 2021 spot, after a stalemate with South Africa at the First National bank stadium. The black stars took the lead in the early minutes of the second half with a belter from Ajax Amsterdam wonderkid, Mohammed Kudus. However, it didn't take too long for South Africa talisman, Percy Tau to equalize.
The match ended with a 1-1 scoreline, which means the black stars have qualified for the AFCON 2021 to be held in Cameroon. One of the standout players on the pitch was Ghanaian goalscorer, Mohammed Kudus. His parent club monitored the 20 year old, while in action at South Africa today and after his goal, his club quickly posted him on their official page captioned,' The pride of Ghana'. The post received a lot of comments from Ghanaians who expressed their pleasure towards the warm gesture by the Dutch club.
Mohammed Kudus sealed a big money move from Danish outfit, Nordsjælland to Ajax last summer to replace Donny van de Beek. The Ghanaian youngster has impressed beyond expectation since he stepped foot in the Dutch Eredivisie, scoring twice and assisting three times.
Having missed part of the season due to injury, the versatile youngster is poised to make a strong comeback to enter Erik Teng Hag starting eleven soon.
