The Asante Kotoko goalkeeper had his first big opportunity to start in goal for the Black Stars during an international friendly against Qatar on 12th October 2020 in Turkey as regular number 1 Richard Ofori was not available.
Ghana won 5-1 as Abalora failed to keep a clean sheet on his Ghana debut. A long ball was played over the Ghana defence and the former WAFA custodian came out of his area to clear the danger but was unsuccessful as Almoez Ali scored.
Opportunities continued to knock at the door of Abalora as he started in goal once again in the 2022 AFCON qualifying game against South Africa that ended 1-1 in Johannesburg. Kudus Mohammed had put Ghana ahead after 49 minutes but Percy Tau equalized in the 51st after beating Abalora from close range.
Against Sao Tome et Principe on 28th March 2021 as Ghana won 3-1, Abalora conceded a bad goal following an error at the back that he committed by giving a wrong pass to a Sao Tome et Principe player who got a consolation goal for his team.
In the Morocco 1 Ghana 0 friendly on Tuesday night in Rabat. It was another brand new opportunity for the Kotoko goalkeeper to make a strong case but he ended up making another error leading to a goal conceded.
Thus in 4 games, 90 minutes played each, Abalora has conceded 4 goals and kept no clean sheets.
As it stands now there are plenty of doubts surrounding the Ghana Premier League-based goalie.
