Video: Goalkeeper Ahorlu suffers humiliation in Israel

Published on: 30 August 2010

Ghana World Cup goalkeeper Stephen Ahorlu suffered severe humiliation in the Israeli top flight after he conceded five goals in the country over the weekend.

His performance in the game has severely dented his chances of returning to the Black Stars as he has been snubbed since the World Cup.

The 22-year-old, who plays for top flight side Hapoel Ashkelon, was ineffectual as they suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Hapoel Tel Aviv.

His positioning and reflexes were poor during the game which sparked widespread ridicule from the Israeli media.

The much-hyped keeper was signed by Ashkelon in the off-season hoping that his association with the Black Stars at the World Cup would have given him world-class exposure.

He impressed in their pre-season matches which secured him a six-month loan deal from local side Heart of Lions.

But his performance during the game is likely to give the club second thoughts when the deal expires.

Ahorlu was an unused substitute for Ghana during the World Cup team as they reached the quarter-final stage.

But his poor performances during training sessions at the tournament in South Africa in June resulted in the decision not to call him to the Black Stars.

His place in the Ghana national team has been taken by Kotoko goalkeeper Amoako.

    This seems like a bribe game and that is wrong move for Alholu, as you can see, he even didn't make any attempt to stop any of the goals. I hope the money that he got can help him for the rest of his carrier stupid.

    This is the goalkeeper the Self-annointed Sidewalk coaches claim he is better than Daniel Agyei and attacked the Black Stars coach for not inviting him but inviting the former U20 keeper. This shows these Self-annointed coaches don't know anything about football. They are a dangerous species; they either want Ghana football to deteriorate or they want the coach to pick useless players so that Ghana will lose so that they will get the opportunity to continue expressing their hatred to coach Milo. Shame on you AWAM coaches who think they know better. They live in the DARK AGES!

    honestly, he could have made some efforts to stop the shots. but to be real, his team let him down. there was nothing he could do about the first three goals. his defenders were just standing around ball-watching. that's quite unfortunate. he could have saved the last goal though. but as a team, to concede 4 goals in 22 minutes of the first have tells about the whole team, not just the keeper.
