Ghana goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has no doubts he can keep in-form Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo at bay at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

Kwarasey is likely to be named Ghana’s first choice gloves man due to the lack of game time for Fatau Dauda at South African side Orlando Pirates.

The 26-year-old is in top shape after captaining Stromsgodset to win the Norwegian title last year by playing every single match.

Kwarasey was between the sticks when Ghana lost 1-0 to Montenegro in a friendly last month and hugely impressed.

Before the World Cup kick-starts in June, he could be tested against Dutch stars Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben when the Black Stars play Holland in a pre-tournament friendly in Rotterdam on 31 May.

“It will be fun. I think I can manage to stop Ronaldo,” Kwarasey told Dagbladet.

Kwarasey joined Stromsgodset in 2007 from Valerenga and is playing in his seventh season.

    Kwarasey ,l know you can stop Ronaldo because you did it playing against Brazil.Ronaldinho met his match that day.It is unfortunate AA allowed himself to be blinded by prejudice,nepotism ,bribery in preference for bench warming expert Dauda.
    Instead of encouraging Kwarasey,AA is been like white wash elephant whilst that stupid black stars keeper trainer with no qualification making a fictitious allegation about Kwarasey lacking confidence.
    His coach is not stupid to make Kwarasey captain if he is lacking confidence.l am surprise in all the stupid pull him down rhetoric against Kwarasey,AA never made a single comment publicly in support of Kwarasey but he could say in public that even though Dauda is warming bench,he is my number one , Oti Akenteng recapitulated the same statement on AA stance on Dauda.
    De Gea of Manchester United at some point was jittery and conceded unnecessary goals but Ferguson gave him encouragement and we all know the rest of the story.This is what a good coach does .Dauda has had three coaches at Pirates and they all amount to same conclusion about Dauda that he is not good enough.The only logical explanation of AA insistent on Dauda is the monies he gives our clueless technical bench none of whom are there on merit,not even AA.

  3. Assemblyman says:

    You did it against Ronaldinho..we know in God you will do it again..amen

  4. askantwi says:

    Kwarassey is my man. Akwasi Appiah and that idiot goalkeeper trainer should take heed before we turn our wrath on them. If Dauda is good, he doesn’t come nowhere near Kwarassey. That bribery and nepotism should stop now.

    This guy will perform at world cup. He is going to shock the whole world

  8. Benito says:

    Every black star player is saying he will stop Ronaldo as a ploy to win the coach,s favor.we are not playing one player on the pitch,please spare us this childish comments and get serious..

    • Assemblyman says:

      Well I don’t think so Benito.it depends on the question asked by the interviewer and how GSN also decides to put the question in their articles in catching readers attention .

  9. BlackStar Tacticain says:

    @ Benito, thanks for your comment. Why do our players have attention on Ronaldo only when football is a team effort. Guys remember we have the Germans and US to face not Ronaldo only. Our moving forward in this Mundial depends on our first game with the yanks. Focus should be place on that match than anything else.

  10. Kwaku says:

    But I think the fact still remains that kwarasey and Adams have totally surpassed the form of Dauda during the qualifiers. The guy was complacent I believe hence his dip in form which is likely going to make him the 3rd choice at the World Cup. As at this point, there is no Ghanaian who will ever bang his hopes on Dauda. Either of kwarasey or Dauda is good for me.

    I wish ghana has the goal keeping dual phenomenon Vincent Enyeama(best goalkeeper in the world)and Austine Ejide of The Super Eagles of Nigeria-African Champions!

    • Assemblyman says:

      Place a ball of Enyeame’s weaker’s left side and chances of beating him is 80%.dont you think the world knows about this ? Argentina exploited that side at 2010.the commentator for the game talked about it too.and you are meeting them again in Brazil.Borbor! Cry your own cry ,my only piece of advised .besides i don’t see Nigeria making it to the next round of your group..

  12. JUST SAY says:
