Fatawu Dauda should be Ghana's No.1 goalkeeper, insists ex-Hearts captain Nettey
Ex-Hearts of Oak defender Jacob Nettey is confident that goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda will emerge as a major international star for the Black Stars.
The 27-year-old has established himself at Ashantigold which has earned him call-ups into the senior national team in recent times.
Norwegian-based Adam Kwarassey is a sure bet to start for the Black Stars ahead of Dauda and Daniel Adjei at next year’s African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
But the ex-Hearts defender has backed the experienced shot-stopper to dislodge Kwarassey for the number one spot.
“I have monitored him and I tell you he has the qualities and ability to be number one,” Nettey told Accra-based Happy FM
“I have no doubt in my mind that he is the man who can man the post for us to be safe.
“All he needs is the opportunity and Ghanaians will get to know what I’m talking about.
The former Okwahu United goalkeeper was in post for the Black Stars when they beat Cape Verde 1-0 in an international friendly on November 14 in Lisbon, Portugal.
