Ghana star Dauda not surprised by AFCON exploits

Posted On Wednesday, 20th February 2013

Fatau Dauda was exceptional at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations

Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda says he was not surprised by his exploits at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Ashantigold shot-stopper has exploded into the limelight after an impressive performance in his first major outing in Black Stars colours.

Despite the country’s failure to clinch the title which has remained elusive for the past 31-years, the exploits of the 27-year-old continue to earn rave reviews in the West African country.

The former Ashantigold glovesman was simply a revelation as he emerged as arguably the best player in the Black Stars set-up at the continental showpiece.

While many have hailed his heroics at the tournament in South Africa, he says he was not totally surprised at his superlative display.

“It was an opportunity which came my way and I grabbed it. All the three goalkeepers are great but I just was chosen by the coach,” Dauda told Obuasi-based Time FM

“It has been a learning curve for me and I thank God, the coach and Ghanaians for the opportunity.

“I went into the tournament with high hopes even though I wasn’t sure I will going to get the nod to be in post.

“But like I said, I got the chance and I took it. I enjoyed tremendous support from my two other colleague goalkeepers as well.

“We were a team and it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t win.”

Dauda’s fine performances has led to calls for many locals to be drafted into the team ahead of the resumption of  the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
