Ghana football legend, Mohammed Polo is convinced Mohammed Kudus and Ernest Nuamah can lead the Black Stars to end the country’s 41-year Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy drought.

The duo were impressive in Black Stars’s final Group E qualifying game against the Central African Republic (CAR) in the AFCON qualifiers at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Kudus and Nuamah both scored as the Black Stars fought back to secure a 2-1 win.

With Ghana aiming to end its AFCON trophy drought next year in Ivory Coast, Polo described the two footballers as generational talents, adding that he believes Ghana would benefit immensely from their contributions to the senior national team.

“The telepathy between these two players could propel Ghana to AFCON success in Cote d’Ivoire and would have a massive impact on our bid to qualify for the next World Cup,” he told GNA Sports.

“It is very rare for Ghana to have these kinds of players on one team at a time, but we are blessed to have this duo who are not just creators but scorers,” he said.

Polo, who won the AFCON in 1982 also asserted that the recent moves by these players in the respective European clubs would aid in their development and would become massive for Ghana’s football progress, especially at the senior level.

“I am happy with their progress, and I urge you to annul all the negativity that they might face while playing football, especially on social media,” he added.

Mohammed Polo stated that there are more of these talents in Ghana and that more has to be done to unearth them, especially by supporting experienced footballers to build more academies.

Kudus and Nuamah also scored in Black Stars’ friendly game against Liberia staged at the Accra Sports Stadium in a 3-1 win.
