West Ham United’s new £38m star boy Mohammed Kudus does it yet again and here’s a look at his latest goal.
And he has only served to whet the appetites of Hammers fans further with a glimpse of what’s to come with his performances for Ghana.
The 23-year-old helped the Black Stars qualify for the African Nations when he curled home a wonderful free-kick in a 2-1 victory over Central African Republic last week.
Now West Ham’s new £38m star boy Kudus has done it yet again and here’s a look at his latest goal.
Kudus scored his fifth goal in his last three starts for club and country as Ghana beat Liberia 3-1 in a friendly on Tuesday.
This time the attacker controlled the ball in the box on a pudding of a pitch and with his quick feet made himself half a yard to roll the ball into the corner of the net.
You can see the goal in the post below.
Kudus played 75 minutes and – as it was a friendly – was withdrawn in a pre-determined substitution.
His goal means he has now scored 10 goals and laid on one assist in 14 starts for club and country in all competitions this term.
When Kudus heads to AFCON he will likely miss six West Ham games.
And he won’t be the only Hammer involved in the Ivory Coast between January and February.
As reported on Hammers News, West Ham look set to be missing four stars for five or six games in the new year.
Ghana will be one of the favourites to go deep into the tournament with players involved set to be released at the start of January.
And that means Kudus will likely miss six games starting with West Ham’s FA Cup third round tie on the weekend of January 6th.
He will then likely miss Premier League games against Sheffield United, Bournemouth, Manchester United, Arsenal and possibly Nottingham Forest depending on how far Ghana go and how much – if any – leave West Ham give him afterwards.
Kudus will be joined – if fit and selected – by West Ham teammates Nayef Aguerd (Morocco), Said Benrahma (Algeria) and Maxwel Cornet (Ivory Coast) at AFCON.
He’s only played one minute for West Ham so far – but hopes are high he will start against Man City this weekend.
