Former Aduana Stars FC and Black Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams has said representing Ghana at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil was a dream come true.

Adams said it is every footballer's dream to play at the world stage and making the Ghana squad for the Mundial in 2014 was a dream come true.

"It was a great feeling because it is every player’s dream to play at the World Cup. There are a lot of players in Ghana and to be part of the 23 man squad was a great feeling," he told GhSportsnews.com.

The 31-year-old revealed he had no fears in him as a local player to play at the World's biggest football tournament.

"I had no fear in me because it is my work. None of these players (Iniesta, Ronaldo) plays with four legs, so there is nothing to be scared of. Fear kills your spirit and you should not attach it to anything you are doing in life."

Adams earned his first call-up for Ghana on 13 May 2010 for the 2010 FIFA World Cup but couldn't make the final squad for the tournament.

On 13 January 2014, he made his debut for the Black Stars against Congo at the 2014 African Nations Championship.

He was the team's first-choice goalkeeper at the tournament, conceding only one goal in six matches as Ghana finished as runner-up to Libya.

On 2 June 2014, Adams was named in Ghana's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
