Mohammed Kudus, a Ghanaian midfielder, scored once more for Ajax in their 2-1 Eredivisie loss to AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.
The 22-year-old kept up his remarkable goal-scoring streak, but his team lost at the AFAS stadium despite his effort.
Kudus has now netted six goals for Ajax throughout his previous five games in all competitions.
After directing Kenneth Taylor’s pass past goalkeeper Hobie Verhulst in the 12th minute, he gave the Sons of Gods the lead. However, the hosts tied the score in the 40th minute through Mees De Wit, and Alkmaar reclaimed the lead just before halftime thanks to Jens Odgaard.
Although Ajax played better in the second half, they were unable to prevent losing their 7th game of the 2022–23 season. The defeat has dropped them down to the second spot with 18 points in 7 games, on equal points with first placed PSV.
Mohammed Kudus (born 2 August 2000) is a Ghanaian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Ajax in the Eredivisie and the Ghana national team.
He spent his formative years playing for the Strongtower FC and Right to Dream academies in Ghana, where he showed prospects. The gifted adolescent was discovered in 2018 at the age of 17 and signed by FC Nordsjaelland in Denmark.
The midfielder lost 2-0 to Brndby IF in his first game. With 14 goals and 3 assists in 51 games in the Superligaen, Mo would soon demonstrate his unmistakable skill.
Although Kudus’s performance as a “false nine” looks to have been a stroke of genius, Schreuder may not have had full confidence in the offensive midfielder at the beginning of the season.
Kudus has been shifted from his normal position behind the striker to the main man in the previous four games because young Brobbey is still getting acclimated to life in Amsterdam. He has shown that he is capable of managing the role.
He has taken advantage of the opportunities offered by his teammate’s thanks to his speed and dashes in behind the defense, and he appears to possess all the necessary attributes to play up front.
Already, there are appeals from Ghana to give him the striker position in the Black Stars team in the World Cup.
