Goalkeeper Stephen Adams is not getting swollen headed by the Black Stars call-up to face Montenegro in next month’s pre-World Cup friendly and wants to fight for World Cup place.

The Aduana Stars gloves man has been rewarded for his stellar displays at the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa.

Adams knows he must convince head coach Kwesi Appiah on 05 March to confirm his place in the squad heading to Brazil.

“I am extremely delighted to have made my way back to the Black stars," Adams exclusively told Ghana’s number football website

“I will work hard and hope my career continues growing from here.

“I am not going to allow this call up get into my head I will rather work hard to ensure am I seal my position in the team.

"The chance to play with the national team is the dream of every Ghanaian and I will do my utmost best to ensure I prove the coach right.”

Adams is the only player home-based player in the squad to face Montenegro.

    Still like Dauda. We need characters in our team and Dauda brings the best all the time. If dauda does well in our friendlies and he should still remain our #1 keeper. He hasn't disappointed the team and i think it will be wrong to abandon him like that just because south africa prefers to keep their national team keeper on the field over our own.

    I hope this wont be a one time chance but something that will continue to end up like Patrick Antwi's situation.He needs to grow confidence in order to build on his game.
