Joseph Wollacot Back to Ghana Squad : Goalkeeper Joseph Wollacot has been named in Chris Hughton’s 25-man Ghana squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Angola later this month.
The first-choice Ghana custodian was ruled out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to an injury at his club Charlton Athletic some few days before the tournament commenced.
In his absence , St. Gallen Number One Lawrence Ati-Zigi started and completed all three group matches of the Black Stars against Portugal (3-2 defeat) , South Korea (3-2 win) and Uruguay (2-0 defeat).
The Black Stars will host Palancras Negras at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Thursday, March 23 before travelling to Luanda on March 27, 2023 for the reverse fixture.
