Ghana's football association have explained why Richard Ofori has been replaced with former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda in the Black Stars squad.
After playing for Ghana in their 2-0 win over Sudan in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Thursday, the newly signed Buccaneers shot-stopper will miss the team’s next match against Sudan on Tuesday owing to suspension and not injury, as many believed.
“Legon Cities goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has been called up to replace Richard Ofori for the trip to Sudan. The Orlando Pirates goalkeeper picked up his second yellow card in the qualifiers on Thursday against Sudan at the Cape Coast Stadium ruling him out of the 2nd leg in Khartoum,” ghanafa.org reports.
“Fatau thus gets the nod to travel with the team for the reverse fixture scheduled for Omdurman, Sudan on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. The Black Stars departed Accra on Sunday afternoon for the Sudan,” reads the report.
