The most anticipated tournament that everyone has been waiting for, the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, is finally here with mind-blowing performances from the qualified teams.
Everyone was looking up to the world’s best iconic players, who are fortunate to be in the tournament. Some of these players are Ronaldo ( Portugal ), Mbappe ( France ), Messi (Argentina), and Neymar (Brazil), to mention only a few.
But it is really getting amazing to see emerging young stars. Football lovers are getting new headline players for themselves.
In the match between Senegal and Qatar, Qatar was beaten by 3 goals to 1. In the absence of the world’s favorite player, Sadio Mane, his team Senegal managed to keep up an outstanding performance throughout the tournament. Twitter was at the top of the list, with Mohammed Muntari trending as a history maker.
Despite Qatar’s loss, the Ghanaian-born Mohammed Muntari, who switched his nationality to play for Qatar, became the top news in town for scoring his 18th goal for his national team and the first ever world cup goal. He becomes the first player in Qatar’s history to score a World Cup goal.
Netizens took to their social media handles to show their love for the young superstar. And one post that has become the headline in relation to Mohammed Muntari’s history is from Kay, a Twitter user who said, “Qatar should let us trade Jordan Ayew for Mohammed Muntari for they have taken the wrong person.”
It is known that Jordan Ayew is a professional player for Ghana, about whose style of play most people complain. And this happened again in Ghana’s match against Portugal, where Kudus was substituted for Jordan Ayew to take charge. Since he wasn’t able to strike as well as Kudus, a lot of football lovers trolled him after the match as one cause of Ghana’s loss.
