Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda modest with top form at Nations Cup

Posted On Sunday, 3rd February 2013

Fatau Dauda was in great shape against Cape Verde on Saturday

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has played down his heroics against Cape Verde which sent the Black Stars through to the semi-final of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Dauda was named Man-of-the-Match in Saturday’s 2-0 quarter-final win in Port Elizabeth with his breathtaking saves.

The AshantiGold gloves man-making his second Nations Cup appearance-has conceded two goals (all in one match) after four matches.

The 27-year-old has justified why he deserves to be Ghana’s number one but he wants to be modest with his tournament form.

“I will say Allahamdullahi (Praise be to God), Allahamdullahi (Praise be to God), Allahamdullahi (Praise be to God),” Dauda replied to a question on whether he has secured the number 1 position.

“It was a difficult one. You know we have very three good goalkeepers in the team and we have a lot of goalkeepers in the country both foreign and local.

“That is why we have the technical team. They chose me to start the game of this tournament.

“Not that am good than the other two goalkeepers but in football, everything is about selection and so I have to do my best to pay back the faith of the coach.”

Dauda was an unused goalkeeper in Ghana’s squad at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations on home soil.

    Dauda,your performance was A so keep it up.No team can win AFCON with a shambolic goalkeeper so that was why some of us kept druming about your performance after watching you against a friendly with Cape Verde & Egypt.Little did we know that you were going to save us from the jaws of the Blue Sharks.You made Ghana proud….you made AA proud….and you made a case for local players….congratulations and keep it up.

  2. Sergeant says:

    Wakaso,Dauda,Adomah,Rabiu,Atsu and Asante are the potential legacies of AA that we will one day talk about.A foreign coach does not build a team but a local one does and that is why countries like Cameroun,Egypt and South African are struggling because they have given the team building exercise to foreign coaches.Nigeria were smart on this else they wouldnt have been at AFCON 2013.I commend our football management for smoothly finding replacements to our Stephen Appiahs,John Mensahs,Matthew Amoahs without a dip in form of the Black Stars.

  3. Ashantman says:

    We are creating Jobs for our Local folks by employing Local or native coaches

  4. Ashantman says:

    Adomah has never benen impressive in any much in any match . Mayele has to wake-up and start Solo Asante.

  5. asante isaac says:
