Mohammed Kudus ready for South Africa showdown


Black Stars and Ajax attacking midfielder, Mohammed Kudus is upbeat and ready for Ghana’s penultimate African Cup of Nations qualifier match against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa today at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg.

Speaking to the Ghana Football Association’s official website, the former Nordsjælland player intimated that team spirit in camp is high ahead of the crunch encounter.

“It has been very good. There’s a very good team spirit and unity in camp and everyone is 100% ready for the game,” Kudus told the Ghana FA website. “The goal is to qualify for the AFCON so we go into every game with the same mentality, whether it is two games or one game that we have to win, the mentality is the same.

“It’s the same spirit so whether we will qualify after this game or the next game, it’s the same mentality and we are going to do our best to seal qualification [in South Africa].

“The best way to approach the game is thinking that it’s a new game. Because we beat them the first time, they are going to come with extra motivation to beat us so the most important thing is to match their spirit and play what we know best.

“We will approach the game the same way we did the other time. But that is gone, this is the most important game for us and that is what the focus is about.” He concluded.

The team will play its final match against Sao Tome and Principe on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
