Kudus came off the bench in the 76th minute to secure West Ham a late equalizer against Newcastle United with his goal in the 89th minute, becoming the 17th different Ghana international to score in the Premier League.
“It’s nice to score this goal, obviously,” he said in the post-match interview. “More importantly, he made the difference to the team as we got a point. Even though we wanted the three points, I was happy to score my first goal [in the Premier League], and it was important to get a point.
Kudus added that Stonebwoy actually predicted that he would score two goals in the match and although he only managed to score one, he believed that the musician brought good luck to the stadium.
“It was great to celebrate with our amazing fans. When we were 2-1 down and I was on the bench, we could still feel the support and energy from the fans, so credit to them. I think it really increased the energy of the players. There was a beautiful atmosphere today; everyone did their best, so let’s take the point we got from it.
Kudus is now set to focus on international football as he is expected to feature in Ghana’s upcoming international friendlies against Mexico and the United States on October 14 and 18 respectively, with both matches taking place in the United States.
