“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 after the match.
Stephen Adams is likely to make Ghana's World Cup final squad due to his superlative performances at the CHAN.
