Ghana concerned over West Ham star Mohammed Kudus’ fitness prior to Comoros clash


Mohammed Kudus may be absent for Ghana’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Comoros Islands on Tuesday as he refrained from participating in the last training session on Monday.

The West Ham player refrained from training due to back issues and is now scheduled for a last-minute fitness assessment to determine his eligibility.

Kudus, a crucial member of Chris Hughton’s team, played a significant role in the triumph against Madagascar last Friday.

According to reports, the 23-year-old has been granted an exemption from training as he strives to regain fitness for the crucial Group I match. His non-participation presents a significant setback for Ghana, contributing to the expanding list of injuries within the team.

In related news, the medical staff of the Black Stars announced on Monday that defender Daniel Amartey will be unavailable for the Comoros game due to an injury.

“Although MRI scans did not reveal any obvious injury, his clinical progress as monitored by the medical team has been rather slow, making him unavailable for the Black Stars ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Comoros,” a report on the FA’s official website read.

Amartey had to leave the field during the second half of the Madagascar match and was substituted with Hoffenheim center-back Kassim Adams.
