Mohammed Kudus Reflects on Debut West Ham Goal, Pledges to Gives His Best Ahead of Liverpool Clash
- Ghana midfielder, Mohammed Kudus has netted his debut goal for West Ham
- Kudus starred as the Hammers came from behind to beat Backa Topolo
- The attacking midfielder joined West Ham in the summer from Ajax
Mohammed Kudus has shared his excitement after he scored his debut goal for West Ham in the comeback win against Backa Topola in the Europa League.
The Ghana international headed home from a James Ward-Prowse corner to give the Hammers a second-half lead moments after forcing an own goal from Nemanja Petrovic.
Kudus was handed his first start on Thursday night and lasted the entire duration of the 3-1 win at the London Olympic Stadium.
The 23-year-old insists there is more to come as he reflected on his maiden goal for the club.
"On the first goal, I don’t know if it’s mine but the ball touched me a little bit, then I just turned and the ball was in the goal," he said in a post-match interview.
"We know James Ward-Prowse has a fantastic delivery and any time we have a set-piece we have a chance to score. On that one I just took my responsibility, made the run and it went in."
Kudus has now made three appearances for the Hammers since joining in the summer transfer window from Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam.
West Ham travel to Anfield on Sunday in the English Premier League, as reported by ESPN.
"The support was incredible from the fans. Even when we were down they kept motivating the team and supporting us. It means a lot to me and I’ll keep doing my best like you saw today for the team. That’s what I’m here to do," added Kudus.
