Ghana: 'Drop Kwarasey for Fatau' - Damba

In the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Fatau Dauda deserves to start in post for the Black Stars ahead of Stromsgodset Adams Kwarasey said former Ghana goalkeeper Abubakar Damba.

"Looking at the trend and Dauda's performances, especially in the local league, I think he has come of age and really prepared for the challenge," Damba told Radio XYZ.

The Ash gold goalkeeper has been on top of his game in the Ghanaian top flight and his performance in Ghana's 3-0 victory over Egypt won him more admirers.

"If you look at the Egypt game, he kept a clean sheet and was very confident in post.

"For me, I think Fatau Dauda is the best now and should be a starter for Ghana at the 2013 Afcon," Damba who until last week was goalkeeper's trainer of Accra Hearts of Oak said.

Norway-based Kwarasey has been the number one choice for the Black Stars since Richard Kingston's stint with Ghana ended in September, 2011.
