Ghana goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has no doubts he can keep in-form Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo at bay at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
Kwarasey is likely to be named Ghana’s first choice gloves man due to the lack of game time for Fatau Dauda at South African side Orlando Pirates.
The 26-year-old is in top shape after captaining Stromsgodset to win the Norwegian title last year by playing every single match.
Kwarasey was between the sticks when Ghana lost 1-0 to Montenegro in a friendly last month and hugely impressed.
Before the World Cup kick-starts in June, he could be tested against Dutch stars Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben when the Black Stars play Holland in a pre-tournament friendly in Rotterdam on 31 May.
“It will be fun. I think I can manage to stop Ronaldo,” Kwarasey told Dagbladet.
Kwarasey joined Stromsgodset in 2007 from Valerenga and is playing in his seventh season.
