Fatawu Dauda wants to impress if given the chance against Liberia on Tuesday to ensure he becomes Ghana’s new no.1 goalkeeper.
The AshantiGold glovesman is in with a real chance to keep the post in the friendly game to be played in Monrovia after Adam Kwarasey’s failed to travel with the team for Tuesday’s friendly.
The 27-year-old deputized for the current no.1 goalkeeper of the Black Stars (Kwarasey) during the 2013 Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi last Saturday.
And he recognizes he needs to bring something extra to the table in order to achieve his ambition of dethroning the Stromgodset shot-stopper as Ghana’s safest pair of hands.
“Although the selection has not been made for the Liberia game, I am very prepared to be in the post if I am called upon,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com before the team left for Monrovia on Monday.
“I need to work harder and perform. You know Kwarasey is number one and I have to do something more than what he is doing to take me there even though it is just a friendly.
“As a goalkeeper you need to be very focused, have concentration and be very decisive in taking decisions because a win or a lose largely depends on you.
“And I only hope I get all these things right if given the day against Liberia.”
The match to be played at the National Complex kicksoff at 16:00 GMT.
