Why Danland Ibrahim isn’t Black Stars’ number one goalkeeper – Saddick Adams explains

Ghanaian Sports Journalist, Saddick Adams, known popularly as Sports Obama says goalkeeper, Danland Ibrahim, is good but it will be premature to be named the Black Star’s number one shot-stopper.

Sports Obama shares the sentiment the safest pair of hands for BetPawa Premier League side Asante Kotoko Football Club needs exposure before he is promoted to such a position.

He thinks getting the exposure will pave the way for Danland Ibrahim to command a starting lineup in the men’s senior national team and accomplish success.

“I would want him to learn the robs a bit. He appears to be the only player in the Ghana team who has gone through all the ranks – the levels. U-17, U-20, U-23, and to the local team, the CHAN team and now getting a shot at the Black Stars,” he told Paul Adom-Otchere on Good Evening Ghana.

While speaking on Metro TV’s political and current affairs programme on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, the SWAG Sports Journalist of the Year, stated without mincing words Danland Ibrahim being in the pole will be unfavourable for Ghana and truncate the Black Stars’ World Cup campaign.

“Going to throw Danlad in the free against Portugal in the first game at the World Cup, Perhaps, you would want to… very young, You know, Ghana has the youngest team in the World Cup,” he argued.
