Razak Braimah believes he is better than Wollacot and Ofori
Ghanaian International Razak Braimah believes he can do far better than Jojo Wollacot and Richard Ofori in the Black Stars team.
The former Ghana number has not received a call-up since the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
“With all due respect, I can do much better than them. I respect them a lot but in terms of quality? I should be part and I will play all the games with all due respect to my teammates and my colleague goalkeepers,” he said in a Twitter space hosted by Sports Journalist Alexander Anyankwaa.
“Those who follow me at my club side and know me from my time at the Black Stars and also understand football know that I’m 100%(good). I’m not bragging but I know what I can do and those that know football, know 100%,” he added.
Braimah, who previously played for Mamelodi Sundowns and Cordoba, has kept eight clean sheets in 18 games for Deportivo Linares this season.
Razak earned the first of his 27 caps for Ghana on 14 August 2013, appearing in a 2–2 friendly draw in Turkey as a 46th-minute substitute. He was part of the squad that appeared in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, being first choice as the nation reached the final; in the decisive match, against the Ivory Coast, he missed his penalty shootout attempt in an eventual 9–8 loss.
Razak also started in the 2017 edition, a fourth-place finish in Gabon. Following criticism of his performances, he posted a video on Facebook that was perceived as disrespectful towards his compatriots, and was handed a $2,500 fine by the Ghana Football Association.
