Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi has showered praises on Ghana goalkeeper Stephen Adams after his heroic performance denied Nigeria a place in the CHAN finals.

Adams made an astonishing save in the last minute of extra time to deny the eagles what would've been the match winner and he also saved in the shoot outs.

Keshi was left startled and he told the media after the match that with Adams in post, "you are rest assured."

"I think the goalkeeper did a wonderful job and he is there to do that. He is there to save goals, he is paid to save goals. His career is to save goals so he did a wonderful job," said Keshi.

"I would love it to be at the back of the net but when you see outstanding goalkeeper like that, I think he has been doing a wonderful job throughout this tournament,"

"When you have a goalkeeper like that, you are rest assured that it can go in but it will take time before it goes in and that's what he has proved in this game.  I wish him well", the reigning CAF coach of the year added.

    Stephen Adams has been outstanding throughout this tourney. And i have been telling lot of people this guy deserve a call into the snr national team proper. This chap is better than Fatau Dauda who will always punch out the ball. For Kwarassey we all know the technical team does not like him. So for Ghana to be on a safer side during this world cup in Brazil, then Dauda must be kicked out.

    I think this goalkeeper should be given the shot at the black stars upcoming friendlies. Dauda has no place in the black stars.AA should not be swollen headed,the world cup is a different ball game. Kwaresay is tried and tested.Anybody in his position will not be encouraged to give off his best given the way AA is treating him.Playing a bench warmer in south African league ahead of a captain of a team in europe is senseless.
