Ghana first-choice keeper Fatau Dauda failed in his bid to gatecrash the Orlando Pirates first team squad over the weekend as he was left out of their 18-man squad for their home defeat against Supersport United on Saturday. 

The 28-year-old was overlooked by Roger De Sá for his 18-man squad for their home tie at the Orlando Stadium which they lost 2-1 to visiting SuperSport.

The former AshGold man has vowed to work his way into the Pirates first team squad and underwent special training exercise with the Ghana national team goalkeepers’ training while on holiday in Accra.

Ghanaian fans and officials have expressed concern about Dauda’s lack of activity at Pirates and ave urged him to leave Pirates for a club where he can secure more playing time.

He was in post for the Buccaneers in a friendly game during the week but failed to make the first team squad for their league game.

    Enough is enough! I’ll be very surprised if this dude make it to Brazil. Dauda is just an ordinary goal keeper, ,asuch what is the wisdom in giving exception to such a player? Except K.Asamoah, dede, , Sulley Essien.Any player warming the of his club has no business going to brasil. I wonder why AA has not figure out that, in football a player can dip in form in just a month, asuch it very be stupid to give exception to those average players .

    What I see happening in the Dauda saga is a pure form of power play by the people at Orlando Pirates. What they are saying indirectly to Ghana is that, Dauda might be good enough to be a first choice goal keeper for the Black Stars, but he is not good enough for Orlando Pirates. It is a power play and I think Appiah should take a stand on this issue and move on to other keepers and get them ready for Brazil.

    What has shocked me about this brouhaha is that the Orlando Pirates promised to give him play time; what happened? They reneged on their promised.

    Dauda has not impressed me in the least since his heroics at the last Cup of Nations. On the other hand, have the Orlando Pirates seen something about Dauda’s ability as a keeper that has eluded Appiah and his technical staff?

    One friendly match and GSN dubbed it exclusive, now see not even in their 18man squad. Fatau Dauda should consider a loan move for playing time or else he would be watching the WC on TV, unless AA has different agenda for him.
