Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic says Adam Kwarasey is his undisputed first choice goalkeeper despite concerns over the shot-stopper confidence at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Norway-born status as the No1 goalkeeper is under threat after conceding a ‘casual’ goal at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations against Guinea last Wednesday.
According to the Ghana coach, despite the goal, he has no problems with the shot stopper who put in a commanding performance in the final group game against the Syli National which ended 1-1.
“I believe in Adam Kwarasey unconditionally,” Stevanovic told a press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Tunisia.
“If you saw the match against Guinea, Adam Kwarasey conceded one goal casually
“But Kwarasey saved two clear goals. If you don’t know, watch again.”
Ahead of the crucial quarter-final match with Tunisia on Sunday, concerns have been raised about Kwarasey’s status but Stevanovic says he would check on the goalkeeper who is bit injured to determine who gets to start in post.
“For that I believe in Adam Kwarasey. But for now, he is a bit injured and if he cannot play, I believe in Daniel Agyei,” he said.
Ghana need to beat Tunisia to keep their hopes of a place in the finals alive as the Black Stars chase a fifth Nations Cup.
