Adam Kwarasey has been dropped for Ghana’s opening group game at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations against DR Congo.
The 25-year-old loses his starting role to AshantiGold’s Fatau Dauda for Sunday evening’s match in Port Elizabeth.
The Stromsgodset shot-stopper has struggled for consistency since replacing Richard Kingson as the no.1 goalkeeper of the Black Stars barely two years ago.
His ability to deal with especially aerial balls has been very suspect when in the post for Ghana.
He has now surrendered his position to the locally-based goalkeeper who has looked more composed and assured in recent Black Stars games.
Dauda who will be making just his third start for Ghana against DR Congo on Sunday is yet to concede a goal at international level.
