AFCON 2017: Fatau Dauda replaces Kwarasey in Black Stars squad

Nigeria Premier League side Enyimba FC goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has been invited to join the Black Stars camp in the United Arab Emirates following the illness to Norway-based shot-stopper Adam Kwarasey.

Dauda was excluded from the 26-man provisional squad despite training with the team for a week at the St. Aquinas school park as Grant selected Adam Kwarasey, Razak Brimah and Richard Ofori.

However, Fatau has been recalled to replace Kwarasey who was expected to recover in time to train with the team ahead of Grant naming his final squad for the competition in Gabon

Dauda comes with a wealth of experience having featured at two tournaments including 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup in 2014.

He is expected to arrive in Al Ain before Black Stars holds its second training later on Wednesday.
