Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda in friendly action against Iran's 2014 World Cup team

Fatau Dauda was in action against Iran

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda was in action for South African side Orlando Pirates when they held Iran's World Cup team to a 3-3 draw in a friendly this week.

The Black Stars shot-stopper got some rare playing time to boost his World Cup chance in the friendly in South Africa on Wednesday.

The match was played behind closed doors so it is uncertain if the Ghana goalkeeper conceded all the goal as there were two other keepers in action from the South African side in the friendly.

Iran, who are coached by former Bafana Bafana coach, Carlos Queiroz, are in a training camp in South Africa to prepare for the World Cup in Brazil.

“The coach utilised most of the players that have not got any game time of late in this game against Iran. The likes of Ndumiso Mabena, Joseph Molangoane, Jacky Motshegwa, Lennox Bacela and Kermit Erasmus, all got game.

"Goalkeepers, Brighton Mhlongo and Fatau Dauda also got runs as well,” Pirates PRO, Mickey Modisane said.

Meanwhile, Iran handed Moroka Swallows a 5-0 drubbing in another friendly on Tuesday.

Queiroz’s team will now play Mozambique before heading for Australia to hold another training camp on May 12.

Pirates will take on Platinum Stars at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon at 15h00

    what good news is this when he concedes 3 goals..How many goals has kwarasey conceded too?I bet it doesnt interest GSN to talk about it.This is no big news for some of us here at all.Rather its a warning to us all as Ghanaians with regards to how things can be for Fatau Dauda in our posts.I am sure we need a basket for him to collect all the goals from Muller,Ozil,Ronaldo,Dempsey and co.

    Yes, he did concede all the three goals. Akwesi Appiah and idiot Yakubu should get a copy of the tape and will find out how easy those goals were. This game will be the reason why Fatau will not be the #1 keeper for the Black Stars. Reflexes were weak and got booed at one point.

    Please, read the article again. You are over-reacting.
