Black Stars goalkeeper, Razak Abalora, will want to stay off social media for a few days at least after his howler helped Morocco beat Ghana 1-0 on Tuesday night in a friendly.
Ghanaians, who are obviously not pleased with the mistake which led to the only goal of the game for Morocco, have taken to social media platforms to berate the Asante Kotoko goalie.
A number of people have called for Abalora to be dropped from the side while others were baffled as to why he made it into the side in the first place.
Take a look at the goal below:

However, a few others have suggested that tonight’s error was just a blip in what has been a decent season for the goalkeeper in the Ghana Premier League.
Below are some of the reactions on social media.
Razak abalora is a good goal keeper regardless. This mistake can happen to any keeper

I need some explanation though, how is this goalie Abalora guy good to the extent that he is in post for the Black Stars. Like I just don’t understand.

Don’t axe Abalora from the team. He’ll come good.

Keep Abalora as far away from the team as possible.
Your back up goalkeeper can’t be someone who makes consecutive errors in games of no pressure whatsoever.
