Former Ghana goalkeeper, Fatawu Dauda has waded into the error made by Hearts of Oak shot stopper, Richard Attah in their opening day loss to Real Tamale United.
The Phobians were shocked late into their first game of the 2023/24 BetPawa Premier League season at the Aliu Mahama Stadium last Friday.
Hearts goalkeeper, Attah was off his line when a cross came in from a corner kick, but failed to reach the ball first as Owusu Afriyie connected to the ball for RTU’s winner on the 88th minute.
Fatawu Dauda wrote: “New season Ghana premier league 2023/2024… RTU Vrs HEARTS OF OAK. The challenges in this clip, why Gk could not get the ball “anticipating before attacking the ball”. It was an out-swing cross, and the principle is telling us to stay high when there is out swing cross, Gk was High alright, but the anticipation made him not to get the ball,” wrote Dauda on X, as he explains the goalkeeping error.
The Phobians will shift attention to their first home game against Nsoatreman at the Accra Sports Stadium.
