Starlets keeper Danlad Ibrahim apologizes for goalkeeping error

Black Starlets goalkeeper, Danlad Ibrahim has apologized for the goalkeeping error that handed Mali a 2-1 defeat over Ghana in the quarter-finals in the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup in India on Saturday.

The Asante Kotoko goalkeeper gifted the Malians their second goal after Hadji Drame had put them ahead in the 15th minute in the first quarterfinal matches.

After the team eliminated out of the tournament, Danlad said, “Sometimes when playing in the rains, the gloves get so wet and slippery.

“I made my mind to push the ball out because I didn’t want to take the chance of trying to grab it. There was not so much power behind the ball and I didn’t get the movement of the ball well.

“It pains me a lot that the team couldn’t go beyond this stage. We had plans of taking the name of Ghana high in this competition but it didn’t work out,” he said.

According to Danlad Ghana lost to a better side and wished the Malians go far and raise the flag of Africa high.
