In a disappointing turn of events at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, Ghana’s star player, Mohammed Kudus, expressed his dissatisfaction following the Black Stars’ 2-2 draw against Egypt in their second Group B encounter.
Kudus, who made a triumphant return to the team, scoring twice and earning the Man of the Match award, believed that Ghana deserved more from the game.
Despite his individual success, Kudus lamented defensive blunders that allowed the Pharaohs to come from behind twice.
“It’s a mixed feeling. As a forward, you want your goals to have an impact on the result. We got a point, but I felt we deserved more because the goals they scored were from some silly mistakes from us which we need to learn from,” he expressed.
Looking ahead, Kudus emphasized the importance of focusing on the next game against Mozambique, where the Black Stars find themselves in a must-win situation to progress to the next stage. Reflecting on the challenging match against Egypt, he acknowledged the opponent’s quality, stating, “We knew Egypt was a good side, and we came with all the energy and enthusiasm, so credit to all the boys; everyone gave their all.”
Ghana now gears up for a crucial showdown against Mozambique on Monday, with the hope of securing a victory to advance in the tournament.
