Former Ghana international Laryea Kingston has nothing but compliments for new-kid-on-the-block Mohammed Kudus following a fine debut with the national team.
A second-half substitute, the 19-year-old Nordsjaelland attacker took only 18 minutes to get going as he netted a sublime effort to help the Black Stars to a 2-0 home triumph over South Africa in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers on Thursday.
He had earlier represented Ghana at U17 and U20 levels.
“He [Kudus] is amazing, you could see his contribution [against South Africa] - his link-up from the wings, midfield and from attack; has been phenomenal," Kingston said, as reported by Ghanaguardian.
"He’s someone I saw playing when he was 13.
"He went through Right to Dream Academy and now he’s doing very well with FC Nordsjaelland."
