Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi believes Stephen Adams has played an influential role in Ghana’s campaign at the CHAN tournament in South Africa.
The 24-year-old is the best at the tournament after conceding just one goal in five matches.
He was at his best when Ghana met Nigeria in the semi-finals last Wednesday after pulling crucial saves both within regulation time and the shoot-outs.
Adams' performance did not go unnoticed after the Nigeria coach singled him out for praise.
"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,” Keshi said.
"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."
Ghana will take on Libya in the final match on Saturday. The two sides drew 1-1 when they met in Group C.
