2014 World Cup: Norway media counting on Kwarasey, Mahatma call-ups

The Norwegian media are counting on Adam Kwarasey and Mahatma Otoo to earn World Cup call-ups while Enoch Adu Kofi and Mohammed Abu are seen as unlikely candidates.

Kwarasey, who plays for champions Strømsgodset, is seen as the most likely candidate to make the final squad after being part of the team in recent times.

The shot-stopper has played second fiddle to Fatau Dauda but now sees his real chance of grabbing the number one spot due to the inactivity of the Orlando Pirates glovesman.

The Norwegian media has been sizing up the chances of the Ghanaian players who ply their trade in the Scandinavian country.

They feel Kwarasey will get the nod while praying for Sogndal striker Mahatma Otoo to sneak into the provisional squad.

Otoo has three caps and was in the squad as late as November 2013.

However Enoch Adu Kofi, Mohammed Abu and defender Bismark Acosta are seen as outsiders.

Abu was in the Ghana squad during their 2012 edition of the African Cup of Nations held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea  but has seen been out of the team.

    Of course Kwarasey will make the list and possibly start,the rest do not stand a chance.Mohammed Abu though is a really great talent,I expect him to be part of the team in the near future,one to watch out for,similar to Rabiu,very neat and tidy on the ball.
