Mohammed Kudus remarked that playing against a renowned player like Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal and Manchester United will bring out the best in both himself and the squad.
The in-form midfielder claimed in an interview with Accra-based TV3 that Ronaldo is an idol to most players and that competing against him serves as sufficient motivation.
“I believe it will be an amazing experience to play on the same field as a legendary player like Cristiano Ronaldo. He said on Countdown Qatar on TV3, “We all look up to him and watched him on TV so it will be fantastic experience sharing the field with him but with all the respect, we will approach the game with the same mentality.
We find great inspiration in it, you know. Many of these players are role models for us, and the team includes some players with whom we did not travel to the World Cup. Although it’s a great source of inspiration for me, we shouldn’t let the occasion get in the way of our goals. I approach every game with the same mindset I used when I was playing at the academy, he continued.
Ghana was placed in a competitive group with Uruguay, South Korea, and Portugal.
On November 24, Portugal will host the Black Stars in Group H’s inaugural match.
