Right To Dream has in previous years produced high quality players from Ghana, with players such as David Accam, Yaw Yeboah, Godsway Donyoh, Thomas Agyepong and Abdul Majeed Waris; but in 19-year-old graduate Mohammed Kudus, they may have finally produced the one to lead Ghana back to our glory years.
Mohammed Kudus is currently the most exciting prospect representing the Black Stars.
The dexterous 19-year-old playmaker has already scored 12 goals and assisted one in 28 games for Nordsjælland in the Danish Superliga.
Kudus can play everywhere in midfield and in attack, and has played in centre forward, centre midfield, attacking midfield, defensive midfield and on the right wing for Nordsjaelland this season.
The precocious starlet has already scored for the Black Stars, with the goal coming on his debut against South Africa.
C. K Akonnor might look to him to spearhead the next generation of Black Stars.
Kudus’s amazing versatility is just one of his many impressive attributes.
The teenager is blessed with an electric burst of pace and mesmerizing footwork, often taking on his man and beating him.
He can also strike a football powerfully with either foot, as he showed when scoring a cracker on his debut for the Black Stars with his so-called weaker right foot from outside the pass.
Kudus’s tactical intelligence is a big factor in his versatility, and the fact that he has the ability and technical knowhow to play anywhere in midfield and attack makes him an asset for any team he is playing on.
The boy can also pick a pass, capable of breaking defensive lines with threaded through balls timed to perfection.
Kudus can really do it all, and it comes as no surprise then that a reputed club like Ajax Amsterdam have forked out €9 million for his services.
With the right development he will become one of the best players from the continent of Africa, if not one of the best players in the world.
The 2020 Golden Boy nominee could be the one to lead the Black Stars back to the glory days.
