Rabiu Mohammed has been dropped as precautionary measure

The Ghana FA has explained the decision to leave out Fatau Dauda and Rabiu Mohammed ahead of next week’s international friendly against Montenegro.

Goalkeeper Dauda and Russian-based midfielder Rabiu Mohammed were conspicuously missing from the 21-man squad released by coach Kwesi Appiah on Monday.

While Dauda is believed to have been dropped due to lack of first team action at South African side Orlando Pirates, the decision to leave out combative Rabiu Mohammed has remained unknown.

However Ghana FA spokesman,  Ibrahim Sannie Daara,  has clarified the situation with the two players.

“Dauda has been seen so many times by the coach. The coach also wants to give others the chance, which is why Stephen Adams has been invited alongside Adam Kwarasey,” Daara told Accra-based Asempa FM.

“Kwesi Appiah wants to give all players at least some chance to prove themselves so that he can have a huge pool to draw the World Cup squad from.”

“We all know Rabiu went to the treatment room so the coach wants to give him the chance to fully recover.”

The two are members of Kwesi Appiah’s squad and are likely to make the final cut.

After the match in Podgroica on March 5, Ghana will play Netherlands on 31 May.

At the World Cup, Ghana are in Group G with Germany, Portugal and the USA.

    please, next friendly, you guys must invite Anthony Annan to test his battle readiness. Clearly, apart from our left/right back problems and goalkeeping, we have a problem with our holding/defensive midfielder. Essien, Rabiu, Frimpong and Derrick Boateng have not convinced us about their suitability for the position in recent times.

  2. Benny says:

    What a load of crap excuse.?The coach has seen Dauda so many times.Really?
    Dauda only warm bench in a minor league.If AA sees Dauda then it’s only to collect his monthly bribe.
    Is AA serious at all?Why call Essien,KPB,Dede Etc.Doesn’t he of their capabilities.
    Dauda is warming bench and doesn’t deserve a place in the team unless he gets playing time.
    Kwarasey needs all the support to give Ghana the performance he gave when we played against Brazil.
    It will be a disgrace to make Dauda our no1 in Brazil.Olando pirate reject to Ghana no1………..
