PHOTOS: Mohammed Kudus gets mural in native Nima celebrating his exploits in Qatar


    An architect in Nima, Mohammed Awudu, has painted a mural of Ghana star Mohammed Kudus in his native neighbourhood to celebrate his exploits at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

    The mural, which was unveiled on Wednesday, November 30, is depicting the Ajax star celebrating his goals at the tournament against South Korea.

    Awudu said the inspiration behind the mural is to inspire kids in the Zongo suburb of Accra to emulate the meteoric rise of Kudus.

    The 22-year-old started his career in Nima with Strong Tower before joining Right to Dream Academy, where he was later developed and transferred to Danish side, FC Nordsjaelland.

    Kudus secured a transfer to Eredivisie club Ajax Amsterdam in July 2020, and his progress there has since drawn interest from numerous elite teams.

    The offensive midfielder is presently in Qatar with the Black Stars in participating in the FIFA World Cup.

    He attracted even more attention as Ghana climbed to second place in Group H following his brace against South Korea ahead of the match against Uruguay on Friday, December 2.
