Mohammed Kudus

Ghana forward Mohammed Kudus has been included in the 60-man shortlist alongside Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood for the 2020 Golden Boy award.

The award which is for young players under the age of 21 who have been exceptional in the year under review, saw the nominee list initially pruned from 100 to 80 and now to 60 players.

Kudus was in sensational form for Nordsjaelland last season helping them qualify to the Championship round after scoring 11 goals and providing one assist in 25 Superligaen games.

The 19-year-old was also impressive on his debut for the Black Stars in his debut against South Africa, scoring within minutes of coming on in the second half.

Kudus, who now plays for Dutch outfit Ajax, will be hoping to make the final 20 list.
