Mohammed Muntari scored Qatar’s first-ever World Cup during the 3-1 loss to Senegal in their second game at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Muntari came off the bench in the second game running to score for Qatar after Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou had scored to give the Teranga Lions a 2-0 lead after 48 minutes played.
The forward’s goal gave hope to the hosts of a possible comeback but were unable to level proceedings as Bamba Dieng added Senegal’s third six minutes away from full time.
The 28-year-old was born and raised in Kumasi before moving to Qatar as a youngster and naturalised for them.
He received a call-up to the Qatar national team in December 2014, and on December 27, 2014, he made his debut against Estonia in a friendly match, scoring his first goal.
Muntari was a trainee at Nii Odartey Lamptey’s GloLamp Soccer Academy.
He plays for Al-Duhail in the Qatar Stars League.
