Goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda has hailed his retun to the national team after a four-year absence.
The Ashantigold glovesman has been rewarded for his fine display for the miners last season by being handed a recall-into the national since 2008.
The 27-year-old is thrilled with his return to the Black Stars fold and says patience has played a key role in that regard.
â€œWhen it comes to the national team, it is all about patience. We have a lot of players in the country and in the system,â€ Dauda told Radio XYZ
â€œWe cannot all be invited into the national team. Itâ€™s all about time and an opportunity,â€
â€œWhen I heard the news, I was very happy. The only thing left for me is to go out there and prove myself so that I can have the chance to play anytime they call me,â€
â€œIt is not just about getting an invite; you have to prove because the technical team and the management have some confidence in me that is why they invited me. Donâ€™t forget I am not the only goalkeeper in the country.â€
The former Okwahu United shot-stopper was on the roster for the African Cup of Nations 2008, as the third keeper.
