Kingson blanks out critics

Ghana's Richard Kingson blanks out critics

Posted: 10 June 2010 Time: 7:46 am

Richard Kingson is aiming to shame his critics as he gets set for Ghana's opening game at the 2010 World Cup. 

Kingson was poor in his last appearance for Ghana against Holland in an international friendly when he let in four goals and positioned himself poorly too many times.   The performance led to a backlash and resurrected a debate about his status as Ghana's number one as Milovan Rajevac insisted he was not guaranteed the goalkeeper's jersey.   But Kingson who played every minute of Ghana's first World Cup campaign insist he didn't do much wrong against the Dutch and insist he will not allow what others think affect his performance.   "Ghanaians are always like that. I am still keeping my confidence and I know the God I serve will not put me to shame but rather my enemies will be put to shame.   “I am training hard and focusing on the game. I can’t see any faults from the Holland game no matter how many times I look. But I don't care. They did it in Angola (during the Nations Cup) but I don't care. I am a professional goalkeeper I will do my best the way I have always done," he told KickOffGhana.com.   Kingson is confident he can play a key part in the first game and insists Ghana must start on the right footing.   “Yeah definitely for the first game we are going in to win the game so we can get three points and have a good stand. You can see every one of the players wants to do it and do it well very quickly.”

When criticized for poor performance rather than retreating on a sober reflection and figuring out what went bad and where corrections can be made, African players would instead invoke the "innocent vs enemy" debate. Simply put, Kingston's got no alibi! He was awful against the dutch-feigning injury and all on the pitch. Ghana's stuck with him though since he seems the most experienced of the keepers. Lets hope he gets it together at the worldcup proper. Hopefully, he does for Africa

This guy is a moron and an idiot as such.Anybody who watched the match attests to the fact that he was poor.If he didn't see it that way then it means he will continue to make the same mistakes.Anyway I dont blame him.This guy has been warming the bench at his club for over three years and he still continues to be Ghana's numero uno!I was expecting him to talk about the new ball jo'bulani but he is too illiterate to even appreciate that pitfall.He will wait to concede another four goals in the tournament proper before he realises what others have been saying,that is even if he has heard it!
