Inaki Williams scored an injury-time winner to give the Black Stars a crucial victory in their first qualifier for the 2026 Fifa World Cup, in a rather underwhelming performance on Friday (17 November).
Coach Houghton had been under pressure heading into the game after some abject performances and while the win was crucial, the display may well have done little to convince the Ghanaian people about his capabilities at leading this team, especially in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
West Ham United man Kudus will be hoping to put this display right when they take on Comoros on Tuesday (21 November) but it seems as though Houghton is struggling to get the best out of their star man so far during his tenure.
Regardless, Kudus remains a big-time player for both club and country and wherever he plays, he certainly possesses the capabilities to become a consistent and unbridled difference maker.
David Moyes will be desperate for more of those at the London Stadium when the Premier League resumes in a week’s time.
