Qatar 2022: Mohammed Kudus relishes opportunity to play against Ronaldo 

Black Stars midfielder Mohammed Kudus is relishing the opportunity to play against Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

Ghana are set to face Portugal in their first World Cup game in Qatar this year and are seen to be underdogs.

The Seleccao have great players, spearheaded by five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

Many eyes will be on the Manchester United man to perform on the biggest stage. Kudus is excited at the opportunity to face him.

“I think it will be a great moment to share the same pitch with an iconic player like Cristiano Ronaldo. We all look up to him and watched him on TV so it will be a great experience sharing the same field with him but with all the respect, we will approach the game with the same mentality,” he stated on Countdown Qatar on TV3.

“It’s a big inspiration for us you know. There are many of these guys we have been looking up to and there are some in the team that we didn’t go to the World Cup with. It’s a big inspiration for me but on the other hand, we can’t get too carried away by the occasion. My mentality is approaching every single game like when I was playing in the academy,” he added.
