Veteran goalkeeper Richard Kingson believes Ghana’s World Cup trio Fatau Dauda, Adam Kwarasey and Stephen Adams have the credentials to shine in Brazil. 

Kingson was omitted in head coach Kwesi Appiah’s provisional 26-man squad despite making 13 appearances for Balikesirspor to gain promotion to the Turkish Super Lig.

The 35 year-old was Ghana’s safest pair of hands in the last two editions his wealth of experience overlooked.

But Kingson tod Ghana’s number football website GHANASoccernet.com that the three goalkeepers in camp can live up to the challenge.

“Fatau, Kwarasey and Adams are good goalkeepers whom I know very well. I have no doubt that they are all world class and can do the job at stake,” the former Wigan gloves man exclusively told GHANASoccernet.com

“I wish them all the best and may God bless our home land Ghana.”

Kingson sat on the bench in Ghana’s 6-1 win over Egypt in the World Cup playoff first leg at the Baba Yara Stadium.

    Olele should have made the provisional squad. He made more appearance for his team than Dauda, at least for competition sake. The three keepers feels safe from the three man pruning. .

    BENNY I AGREE WITH U 100 PERCENT. I REALLY THINK FATAU SHOULD HAV BEEN DROPPED 4 OLELE. SO THERE WILL BE A LOT OF COMPETITION,

    As much as they wanted to drop dauda it seems like they didn’t see enough out of olele and also reward dauda for being there through the nations cup and all the qualifiers.. As long as nasan yakubu is the goalkeepers trainer…

    You are the first ever Ghana keeper for our maiden World Cup, you took us to our second as well. Who is can break this record of two successive world cups, is it Kwarasey, Dauda, Adams or Daniel Adjei? We live to see.

    Thank you Richard, we really appreciate your service to mother Ghana. I am hoping the Government would reward all the players and officials who took us to our first world cup. God Bless you. But please, disassociate yourself from TB Joshua.
