Ghana international goal keeper, Richard Ofori , is excited after his debut game against Burkina Faso. The 23 year old WA All Stars shot stopper bossed the post for the Black Stars in a painful defeat for the 4 times African champions.
A late dead ball from Betrand Traore denied Ofori his routine clean sheet in the third and forth place game at the ongoing Nations Cup. The stoutly built young goalie earned global respect with his instinctive reflexes and agility between the sticks for Avrant Grant’s side despite conceding a near perfect free kick from Traore on the stroke of full time.
The Wa All Stars goalie could not hide his feelings after his official debut for the Black Stars, tagging it as a good start. The 2015/16 season Ghana Premier League best goal keeper thanked the Almighty God for his career and pledged to work on the opening cap.
“I thank God for everything in my career so far and hope to build on the first competitive cap for the Black Stars.
“It was my first game for the Black Stars and I can’t hide my excitement at making the starting eleven and will surely work on my all round performance as a footballer.
“Personally it was a good start for me even though we painfully lost in the closing minutes of the game “, Richard Ofori told sports crusader exclusively.
The Wa All Stars goalie mustered a run of 15 clean sheets in his 27 league matches to guide his side to the 2016 Ghana premier league trophy. He has since been voted the best goal keeper in Ghana for the past two years running.
