Fatau Dauda has been left out of the squad to play Montenegro

South Africa-based goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has been axed from Ghana’s squad to play Montenegro in a World Cup warm-up next week.

The Orlando Pirates shot-stopper was left out of coach Kwesi Appiah’s 21-man squad for the friendly game on 5 March.

It was not certain why the Ghana first-choice goalkeeper was left out of the squad to play the match but it could be the chance to offer someone the opportunity to be observed.

Local Black Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams has been named to partner Adam Kwarasey for the match following his excellent showing at the Africa Nations Championship in South Africa in January for the Local Black Stars.

While it is clear that coach Kwesi Appiah is unable to call many players because it is only a friendly, some might conclude that the lack of first team action at club level might have contributed to the decision to axe Dauda.

Dauda has been confined to the role of a fringe player at his club Orlando Pirates and has struggled for form and confidence since his big money move from Ghanaian Premier League side AshantiGold to the South African league early last year.

South African goalkeeper Mewiya Senzo’s fine form in the league means Dauda has made only one competitive appearance in the South African league – an appearance that ended in defeat for Orlando Pirates in their 1-0 defeat to Polokwane City.

Despite his exclusion in the squad to face Montenegro Dauda remains among the best two bets of the Black Stars goalkeeping position at the World Cup.

    we have been vindicated.
    ist not like we have got something against dauda but this guy is not playing regularly and that has realy affected his form n performance.
    if dauda was getting first Team game i will be the first to shout for his inclusion.
    dauda has played only 7 matches for both Club and Country since last year june including friendly matches for Orlando.
    now we have been rooting for Adam kwarasey it is now pto im to shine.
    over to you kwarasey

  3. Assemblyman says:

    good news maybe!

  4. benny says:

    Let no one be fooled, it doesn’t matter how Kwaresey perform, AA will pick Dauda ahead of Kwaresey.
    I hope l am wrong but if dauda do not get first team action, he should be axed completly from thr squard.
    Why is Jordan included? Coward AA.

  5. Abdul Rashid says:

    This keeper was purely picked beacuse of the hype this site made about him.
    Firstly the took money of him and boasted him up.
    Now the coach and our nation see he isnt our number 1.
    He is a good goal keeper never the less.
    Ghanasoccernet needs to stop taking money of people.
    My cousin in Italy pays them all the time to write articles about him. Which they did. I told my cousin to stop now he has made me pack my back back to ghana. Luckly i got a visa to go back to the usa.
    If ghanasoccernet does not stop this corrupting reports about players i will report them and expose all the people.
    I am angry my cousin didnt make the squad becausei love italy. Now i must live in stupid ghana for 4 years before i can go usa
