Adomah, Rabiu make Ghana debut

Albert Adomah and Rabiu Mohammed won their first senior caps for Ghana by coming on as second half substitutes in the international friendly with Brazil on Monday.

It however wasn’t a pleasant debut for the duo as the Black Stars slumped to a 1-0 defeat through a Damaio strike on the stroke of halftime at the Craven Cottage in London.

Ghana however held their own against the star-studded Brazilians despite playing most of the game a man deficit after Daniel Opare was red-carded in the 33rd minute.

The loss represents the fourth consecutive time; the Black Stars has had to succumb to a defeat to the South Americans.

Ghana’s next assignments will be the final game away to Sudan in the 2012 Africa Nations Cup qualification series and then an international date with rivals, Nigeria in London next month.

    My man of the match for the game was Opare. He was the game changer and ensured that Neymar did not get a free chance. Brazilians run their game through Neymar and Ronaldhino.

    Ronaldhino did very well.

    I think despite Adomah's short spell he did very well. I saw him in a great run towards the end of the game. Give him more playing time and we have another KP quality in our team.

    Adoma did a fantastic job even though he wasn't given much playing time.His effort shows how much he is committed to Ghana and what he can do when he is given more playing time.The coach should have started him instead.That would be great since he is a speedster.Now that Laryea is no more among the squad,Adoma should be replaced because he has the qualities to prove himself.

    I remember seeing Adomah at Barnet and it's great to see him playing internationally now. He's a brilliant runner with the ball and deserves to play at a higher level.
