Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu says he will recommend Stephen Adams for Black Stars selection after his impressive display at the CHAN tournament.

The Aduana Stars goalkeeper was one of the stellar performers in the home-based Black Stars’ run to a silver medal at the recently ended tournament in South Africa.

Many have called for Adams’ inclusion into the Black Stars to help solve the deficient goalkeeping issues ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.

And Konadu – who is the assistant to Kwesi Appiah – says he will also recommend the Aduana Stars shot-stopper for Black Stars selection but adds the final decision lies with coach Kwesi Appiah.

“We will make the recommendation to the coach [about Stephen Adams],” Konadu told Metro FM.

“But the good thing is that coach Akwasi Appiah was at the CHAN himself so he also has some solid information to help him arrive at the decision.

“But we will still make the recommendation but then the final decision is within the purview of the coach.

“If he accepts, fine but if he feels he is not yet ready for the Black Stars we still have to accept that decision.”

    I did not see any alternate suggestion from you. After exposing Adams' weaknesses, it would have been nice to suggest the person you consider to have fewer weaknesses. We are not just looking for criticism, we are looking for solutions. What is your solution?

    You guys are very funny. This guy make two or three saves in the local black stars and you quickly asking for his inclusion. Watch all those games and judge critically the kind of test he received and you will rightly know that he's not up to the task at the mundial. His aerial timings are mostly bad and anytime he makes such challenge, he lays on the turf screaming even though there weren't any contact on him. At the world cup he would face potent strikers who can really jump and power the ball into the post. I don't see this guy being our number one keeper at the world cup.

    It looks like he will be the only local to make it. Now they have to have a serious competition between Kwarsey, Dauda and Adams.
