Chippa keeper in Afcon squad



Chippa United goalkeeper Kassaly Daouda returns to South Africa this week as a member of the 23-man squad for Niger at the Africa Cup of Nations finals.

His selection was confirmed on Monday when coach Gernot Rohr confirmed his final squad for the upcoming tournament.

It will be the second successive tournament for Daouda, who is expected to be first choice for the Mena Stars in South Africa.

They play Mali in their opening Group B match in Port Elizabeth on January 20 and then taken on Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo in their next two group matches.

They lost all three games in their group in Libreville last January in their debut finals appearance.

Daouda joined Chippa United at the start of the season from Cameroon’s top club Coton Sport along with his compatriot Seidou Idrissa.

But Idrissa has been dropped from the Nations Cup squad because he has not had enough game time at club level.

Daouda was appointed captain last month of the club in an effort by coach Farouk Abrahams after his goalkeeping howler cost his club in the Cape Town derby against Ajax.

Striker Moussa Maazou, who Chippa claimed to have contracted but who went to Etoile Sahel in Tunisia instead, is also in the squad, due to arrive in South Africa on Tuesday.
