Fatau Dauda cool on Black Stars snub for Montenegro friendly

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda insists he is not overly concerned after being axed from the Black Stars squad for the friendly match against Montenegro.

The 28-year-old was dropped from the 21-man squad called up by coach Kwesi Appiah for the game to be played on March 5 in Podgorica.

Many have attributed Dauda’s exclusion from the latest Black Stars squad to his lack of regular first team opportunities at his South African club Orlando Pirates.

Some even believe this could mark the beginning of the permanent expulsion of the former AshantiGold goalkeeper from the team with a few months to the World Cup.

But the 28-year-old remains cool on the latest development – saying his absence gives the coach a unique opportunity to try out other candidates for the position.

“I had a conversation with the head coach of the Black Stars and he made it clear I have had so many opportunities so it is about time he gives the same opportunities to other upcoming goalkeepers who are also doing well for their respective clubs either in Europe or even in Ghana, so I am not worried at all,” Dauda said.

“The coach explained to me that I should keep training and keep my head up and that I shouldn’t lose hope.

“I have taken that in good faith and I will see what the future holds for me in the coming days with my club in SA.

“Many have asked me whether am worried after I was not named in the squad, I tell them am not worried at all – I have a future with the Black Stars and that is paramount.

“I want to train well and give my all to my country and even my club.”
