Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has stated that he wasn’t running at his maximum despite clocking 22.18 MPH in the game against Uruguay in the World Cup.
Despite Ghana’s early exit, the 21-year-old ended the competition as the fastest player ahead of Nico Williams (22.12), David Raum (22.00mph), Antonee Robinson (21.99), and Daniel James (21.99mph).
“I don’t think it was the counter attack because running with the ball in different,” he clarified to 3 Sports.
“It was when I was running back, you know we were down 2-0 and then it was like five minutes to go and there was a counter against us so I had recover back. I saw a player who was free so I had to sprint. I was not even running fast,” he added
Sulemana is back with his club ahead of the season’s return.
