Fatau Dauda concedes THREE GOALS on Chippa debut, Ghana's Mohammed scores for Maritzburg

Fatawu Dauda had to pick the ball from his net three times on his Chippa United debut

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda conceded THREE GOALS in his debut for Chippa United in the South African top-flight on Tuesday with his compatriot Mike Mohammed scoring for Maritzburg United who cruised to a 3-0 win.

Mohammed and John Paintsil also made their debuts for Maritzburg United with the latter's experience and defensive prowess helped his side to seal the 3-0 home victory.

Both Ghanaian players were making their first starts for their respective clubs having received their work permits.

The home side started the match the better side with Nhlanhla Vilakazi, taking a shot a goal as early as the first minute of the match, but Chippa goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda, managed to easily deal with the ball.

Maritzburg’s first shot on target came in the 12th minute when Mkhize fired a 24-yard free-kick goalwards, but debutant Dauda was on hand to make a fantastic fingertip save.

Dauda got his debut to the worse possible start – having to pick the ball from his net in the 20th minute off a strike by Ghanaian hitman Mike Mohammed.

The former Orlando Pirates man kept his cool thereafter to see his side through a tough first half just a goal down.

Dauda making his Chippa debut managed to make more important saves to keep his team trailing by a solitary Anas’s goal heading to the half-time break.

Paintsil on the other hand was putting in a good performance with another Ghanaian defender Awal Mohammed on the Maritzburg bench.

Nhlanhla Vilakazi doubled United’s lead just six minutes into the restart to effectively kill off the fight-back from Kosta Papic’s side.

It got even worse for Dauda as Sheldon Van Wyk struck six minutes from time to put a gloss on United’s impressive home performance.

    I second Dasaintshy that Dauda is still out number one, he just had a bad day @the office. Remember how Castillas conceded 5 goals at the just ended w/cup against Holland???

    3 goals on his debut and more will follow. You all see the racism in Ghana, when a light skinned fella like Kwarasey concedes one single goal we notice it MORE. But when dark skin Fatau concedes we only notice it just a little bit. Racism is every where in the world I say. Even among family members. Hahaha

    Dauda is very good but his defenders let him down , if it was the other gk 6 goals could have gone it.

    Shut UP xoxKSxoxo, stop making excuses for him. If the team is not good, why don't he save them instead of making them worse.

    Where do I start? First off, I am not a fun of FD. I hate him as a national goalie but I will come to his defense here. The team his is playing for is 9th on the log of 16. This is their fourth game having been promoted into the top league from second division. Dauda is playing with not so good players like Gyan, Muntari, Kojo Asamoah, Dede, etc. He surely is playing with players like John Boye so with him conceding 3goals on his debut is not surprising for me. He may be good for that league but he will not be their savior. He will impress more if he gets to play for a better team in SA. Lets give him a break on this one.

    Coaches especially kwesi appiah selects players not based on current form but for strange reasons. Otherwise how can he constantly rely on Dauda when the signs are clearly on the wall. He is a mediocre coach who is being worried by inferiority complex and can not manage players with big egos.

    But Real Madrid is looking for a new goalkeeper. They were thinking Chelsea will give away Peter Cech, and they are still disappointed. Think about that. Spain will have a new goalkeeper.
