Former Ghana international Nii Odartey Lamptey has praised the mental attitude of Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda after he put up a man-of-the-match performance against DR Congo.
Dauda was among five players who made their debut in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa against the Leopards on Sunday in Port Elizabeth.
The shot-stopper made some crucial saves for Ghana in their first group game. In a game where Ghana failed to live up to the favorites tag and sparkle, the Black Stars only managed a 2-2 draw game after taking a two-goal lead.
The former Ghana international believes there is more to come from the 27-year-old Ashantigold last line of defence.
“Fatau Dauda was excellent today [Sunday] and with such competitions you don’t change goalkeepers unless he is injured,” Lamptey told Goal.com Ghana.
“Though [Adam] Kwarasey is playing in Europe, Fatau has a lot of experience from the local scene and for me personally I think he was fantastic in post and must be maintained.”
