Kudus Mohammed named in U-23 Team of 2022 World Cup tournament

Ghana star, Mohammed Kudus, has been named in the best 11 U23 team at the just-ended 2022 Fifa World Cup, according to Whoscored.com.

The 21-year-old was a livewire for the Black Stars despite the team’s early exit from the tournament.

The Ajax star, according to the ratings by Whoscored.com., scored 7.53 out of 10 to join the likes of Bukayo Saka, Cody Gakpo and Vinicius Jr in the team.

Kudus scored two goals and provided an assist in three matches at the World Cup.

His brace against South Korea ensured the Black Stars defeated the Asians in their second Group H game.

“Mohammed Kudus makes the U23 team of the tournament for his excellent showings in the group stages for Ghana. The Black Stars failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition, yet Kudus was superb as noted by his WhoScored rating of 7.53. Two goals, both scored in an entertaining 3-2 win over South Korea, helped bump the Ajax star’s score up,” wrote Whoscored.com.

Kudus has returned to Holland, rejoining his Ajax teammates for mid-season training ahead of the resumption of the Dutch Eredivisie.
