To the surprise of many, Dara O’Shea unintentionally redirected the ball into the net, leveling the score with just four minutes remaining.
But the drama didn’t end there. Kudus, demonstrating his unwavering determination for redemption, once again showcased his prowess with a splendid cross into the box. This time, it found the head of Tomas Soucek in the 90th minute, securing a triumphant return to victory for the Hammers.
Highlighting his versatility, the 23-year-old midfielder showcased remarkable endurance, playing the entire duration of the match and significantly contributing to West Ham United’s crucial away win.
With this performance, Kudus has solidified his impact in the English Premier League, accumulating a total of five goal contributions – a testament to his prowess, consisting of two goals and three assists.
