Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac has disclosed that goalkeeper’s trainer, Richard Kingson scouted new goalkeeper, Jojo Wollacott.

Wollacott, who plays for the fourth-tier side, Swindon Town in England was invited for Ghana’s doubleheader for the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe.

The 25-year-old was selected ahead of the Ati-Zigi for both games.

However, Wollacott's performances silenced his critics, with calling for him to be the first choice goalkeeper for the country.

“It was the work of Richard Kingson because he did the scouting work and he suggested this goalkeeper to me," the 67-year-old Serbian trainer said.

“I watched many videos of him and the decision was made to include him in the squad and when he came, he proved himself and got the chance which he used very well,” he added.

Wollacott's is expected to be included in the squad for Ghana’s crucial last two games against Ethiopia and South Africa in November.

Ghana must win those two crucial games to progress to the knock-out round of the African Qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
