Fatau Duada debuts for Orlando Pirates in PSL but tastes defeat

Fatau Dauda

Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda played his first competitive match for Orlando Pirates on Saturday and kept a clean sheet but his side lost 1-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Absa Premiership.

The Ghana first choice took the place of Senzo Meyiwa, who picked up an injury, on 69 minutes at the Orlando Stadium.

Meyiwa had severe cramps in both legs and had to the taken off by new coach Eric Tinkler.

Dauda gave a good account of himself and prevented Sundowns from doubling the lead.

This comes as a huge relief for the Ghana international who is yearning for regular playing time to protect in place in the Black Stars for the 2014 World Cup finals.

    I wish Fatau Dauda can get a starting lineup next game so that he can prove himself, this habit of the teams for playing one goalkeeper need to stop.

    Are you guys saying he bewitched Meyiwa? I thought Meyiwa was faking the injury after being beaten by a long range strike...which is already a contender for the goal of the season. It's not true that Dauda made a good account of himself...he did not have to make a single save. When he came on Pirates were attacking trying to get an equaliser and camped in the Sundowns half. He hardly saw the ball.

    Lol!! Dauda had to get in there, didn't he? Seriously, injury can happen anytime, Dauda did not cause it. I still think Adams should be called and assessed in couple BlackStars friendlies.

    So he was a backup goalkeeper, he came in as a substitute after his juju put cramps on Senzo Meyiwa
