Appiah: Dauda Still My Number One

Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah, insists Fatau Dauda remains his first-choice goalkeeper, despite dropping him from the Black Stars squad for the friendly against Montenegro.

According to Ghana Web, Appiah said the 28-year-old is his favourite to man the post ahead of Brazil 2014.

“Fatau Dauda still remains my first-choice goalkeeper despite his present predicaments at his club,” Appiah told Accra-based Asempa FM.

“I have given the two [Stephen and Kwarasey] Adams the opportunity to prove themselves countless times and he knows what they are capable of doing but my doors are still not closed to any player.

“I am still monitoring the likes of Daniel Agyei, Razak Braimah and some other goalkeepers who in one way or the other can help push the dream of the team or the nation forward,” added Appiah.

Dauda has made two appearances for Pirates so far this season – one substitution and one start – and his position in the Ghanaian team for the World Cup has come under threat.

Appiah's comments though have given the 28-year-old goalkeeper some hope that he could make it to Brazil despite his lack of game time at Bucs.
