2022 World Cup: Ghana’s Kudus equals Ahmed Musa’s record

Ghana forward Mohammed Kudus scored twice as Ghana defeated South Korea 3-2 in Group H 2022 World Cup action on Monday.

Kudus made it 2-0 for the Black Stars after connecting with Jordan Ayew’s cross.

After drawing level thanks to Jo Gue-Sung’s double, Kudus scored the game-winning goal off a cross from Gideon Mensah.

And At 22 years and 118 days old, Kudus is the second youngest African player to score two goals in a World Cup match, after Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa (21y 254 days) for Nigeria against Argentina at the 2014 edition in Brazil.
