Ghana keeper Adam Kwarasey mans post for Stromsgodset in Uefa Champions League defeat

Adam Kwarasey manned the post for Stromsgodset in Uefa Champions League defeat

Ghana World Cup goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey manned the post and lasted the entire duration of the game for Norwegian giants Stromsgodset who suffered a narrow home defeat on their Uefa Champions League debut against Romanian giants Steaua Bucuresti on Wednesday night. 

The 26-year-old was unable to stop Gabriel Cristian Iancu's 49th minute strike that proved the difference at the Marienlyst Stadion in the Uefa Champions League qualifiers.

According to reports from Norway, Stromsgodset were unhappy with the shot-stopper's decision not to extend his contract at the club and wanted to bench him for the game.

However, manager David Jean Nielsen stuck to the former Norway youth international and fielded him alongside Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Abu in midfield but they suffered defeat before their home fans.

Should Kwarasey move in this summer's transfer window, he will be cup-tied and that could limit his chances of joining a club playing in Europe’s flagship inter-clubs competition.

Kwarasey captained the side and Abu played in midfielder but youngster Nana Boateng who has recovered from injury following a surgery, sat on the bench for the entire duration of the game.

    Here we go again with 50 year olds with 2year olds brain.A keeper is as good as his defenders.Kwaresey is a fantastic keeper.

    The thing is when ever this guy is in the post, you are sure of conceding at least one goal so if you don't have good strikers, then you are sure to loose. I have not only watched him playing for Ghana but also for his club and he always concedes a goal. Even when Ghana was in camp and his club needed him badly, he went to concede a goal.

    Look at this fool, reporting like Kwarasey was only player on the field. How many goals did Brazil goalkeeper concede against Germany , how many goals did Spain goalkeeper concede in their opening game in the world cup. U soon forget the stupid goal Fatau conceded against Portugal . No wonder South Africans were laughing when they saw Fatau playing in the world cup
