AshantiGold to honour AFCON duo Dauda and Troare

Published on: 12 February 2013

Ghana Premier League side AshantiGold have announced they will award two of their players who played at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda was Ghana's first choice goalkeeper at the tournament who earned rave reviews for his exploits between the sticks.

The 27-year-old was adjudged Man-of-the-Match in Ghana's quarterfinal victory against Cape Verde.

His 81st minute world-class save against the Blue Sharks is rated as the best save of the tournament.

Defender Traore played one match for silver-medalists Burkina Faso and that was against Burkina Faso in the semi-finals when he came on as substitute.

He scored one of the penalties for the Stallions in the 3-1 win over the Black Stars.

"Fatau and Henri Traore have done a lot of good for the club and we will honour them deservedly," AshantiGold Chief Executive Kudjoe Fianoo a local radio station.

    Dauda, congratulation on your performance! You did very well and we have nothing against you. You and wakaso are the 2 addition that we are proud to have in the team. As for the Coward captain he has to resign and give the captaincy to inspirational players like Dede. How on earth would a captain scare to take a penalty during shoot out? Would Dede isolate himself from taking a penalty if he was in the team? Therefore, whoever gave the captaincy band to Gyan is a big fool.

    I find it very interesting how some people act with no or less maturity... It's unfortunate when I see this.. You won an African cup of nations and it doesn't matter when you did it, it only reads Egypt 7 times, Ghana 4 times, it's like disrespecting Madrid on how many champ leagues they ve got.. It's people like you that still go around calling white people racist when you are racist yourself... Football is just a game and it's not a reason for people should I say matured- know how people will disrespect other people... I date a Nigerian and it was wonderful how we both watched the final game supporting Nigeria ... The lesson there is supporting eachother is how our African continent can get a world stage ... One reason why we have the AFCON is to unite the african continent not insult people... When we call African giants in football, there ain't a Zambia nor an ETC... Read well on African football.. I forgive your ignorance..
