Debutant keepers bid for WC slots

Published on: 18 May 2010

Goalkeepers Stephen Ahorlu and Stephen Adams have launched a joint bid to be chosen for the World Cup finals saying they have the credentials of providing cover first choice Richard Kingson.

The two, home-based, are among four safest pair of hands named in Ghana's provisional 30-man squad but one will have to be chopped off by head coach Milovan Rajevac in the final 23-man squad.

Ahorlu of Heart of Lions helped his side seal a fourth place berth in the Ghana Premier League and Adams conceded ten goals as Aduana Stars clinched the league title.

"They cannot take four goalkeepers to the World Cup and one has to drop and to me I pray to God almighty that I will be with the 23 and my friend Stephen Adams will also make it," Ahorlu told Joy FM.

Liberty Professionals youngster Daniel Adjei is also named in the initial squad and has a chance of making it.

The 20-year-old won the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.

    dont they have pictures????.. is it only when they are playing abroad that you will paste their pictures here? i have observe that only the players who play outside that you have their pictures on this forum. let brand our local boys too, i think it will do us alot of good.

    NOW YOU KNOW WHY OUR LEAGUE IS NO LONGER POPULAR? BECAUSE WE HAVE JOURNALISTS WHO ONLY KNOW HOW TO COPY- COPY PICTURES AND STORIES FROM INTERNATIONAL WEBSITES. THEY CANT CREATE THEIR OWN STORIES. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE PICTURES OF PLAYERS IN OUR OWN LEAGUE.

    The most important thing is the story and not the picture. i hope Ahorlu and Adams make it to the WC.

    What's with you guys and this whole stuff about pictures? Does appearance make a player any better? Pictures may add a little to the story but I do not think absence of it takes anything away!

    DAN AGYEI DOES NOT COME NEAR BOTH AHORLU AND ADAMS. FOR DIVISION ONE TEAM TO WIN A PREMIER LEAGUE, ADUANA STARS KEEPER ADAMS DESERVES TO BE HONOURED. ADAMS NEVER ALLOWED A GOAL ON HOME TURF. HE CONCEDDED ONLY TEN GOALS THE WHOLE SEASON. REMARKABLE !!!!! LOCAL FANS ACROSS THE BOARD FAVOR BOTH ADAMS AND AHORLU. IT WILL BE A BIG SURPRISE IF DAN AGYEI IS SELECTED AHEAD OF EITHER ADAMS OR AHORLU. AGYEI HIMSELF KNOWS HE'S NOTHING BEFORE THESE TWO LOCAL GOALKEEPERS. WE SHD NOT BE FOOLED BY U-20 AGE LIMITATION THAT ALLOW DAN AGYEI IN THE POST OTHERWISE AHORLU AND ADAMS WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE IN EGYPT. THIS IS SENOIR TEAM; PLEASE ALLOW DAN AGYEI TO MATURE GRADUALLY. WE MUST NOT RUSH HIM.

    The point being made here is about TEAM WORK! The panacea of Soccer Success as the Aduana Stars have shown is a good blend of talented forwads,defenders,strikers and of course Goal Keepers. Fitness of the players,harmony in he team,experience,youthfulness and athletism as well as Technical expertise not forgetting Mother Luck all count. WE APPEAR TO HAVE AN INJURY PLAGUED FINAL 30 SQUAD. We should not be counting on unfit players 'dying Hard' on the day of play. The standards at the World Cup are extreemely high. May I suggest Ghanasoccernet organises a prized competition of the final 23 selection as well as a Team selection/line-up to play each game that the Black stars gonna play in SA?
