Ghana's No. 1

Joseph Wollacott backed to start for Black Stars against Brazil

Published on: 22 September 2022

Former Black Stars goalkeeper William Amamoo has backed Ghana's Joseph Wollacott in his upcoming match against Brazil.

Amamoo believes the Charlton Athletic player is currently better than Black Stars' second deputy captain Richard Ofori and Nurudeen Manaf.

He believes Wollacott will be Ghana's starting goalkeeper during the World Cup in Qatar and wants him to start the warm-up games.

"Wollacott is likely to be our 1st choice goalie at World Cup so it's fair for him to be tested. Joojo should play for 60 mins, and then Ofori comes to taste the rest.

“Starting Wollacott vs Brazil will show if he's ready for WC stage,” Amamoo said on Happy FM.

The international friendly match between Ghana and Brazil will be played in Le Havre, France on Friday, September 23, 2022.

After Brazil, Ghana will travel to Spain to play Nicaragua on September 27.

Both games are part of the Black Stars' preparations for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022, where they will compete in the group stage against Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
