Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda revels 2013 Afcon exploits

The Ashantigold shot-stopper hopes to thrive on the massive experience gained at the Africa Cup of Nations after a series of impressive displays in his first major outing

Ghana goalkeeper Abdul Fatau Dauda is relishing a new challenge at his next probable destination after hitting the limelight with the Black Stars in South Africa.

The former Okwahu United goalkeeper believes he has learned a lot from his debut tournament experience and hopes to maintain his fine form for a consistent period of time.

“I never thought of been the first choice goalkeeper before we made the trip to South Africa, but I got a sudden self belief when I took to the post in our friendly against Egypt and that is how it all started,” Dauda told Storm FM.

"I have gained so much experience from the tournament and personally I can say that there were a lot of things I didn’t do previously that I have come to know now, so seriously I am going to work on that wherever I go now."

The gloves-man who went viral after his famous ‘lions roar’ celebrations also had some reserved words for the head coach of the team.

"Kwesi Appiah is a noble gentleman who always sticks to his grounds. He wanted to win the trophy for Ghanaians but things didn’t go his way so I plead with all Ghanaians to keep faith in him because very soon he will do great things with this nation,” Dauda added.
