I will give Jojo Wollacot a chance to play against Uganda – Otto Addo

Published on: 26 March 2024

Ghana coach Otto Addo says he will give goalkeeper Jojo Wollacot a chance to play against Uganda.

The Black Stars will lock horns with the Cranes of Uganda at the Grande de Stade Marrakech, Morocco at 4pm today.

Wollacot, who plies his trade for Hibernian in Scotland is among the three goalkeepers in camp ahead of the Uganda international friendly match.

Having missed Nigeria clash, Otto Addo says he will be involved against Uganda to showcase himself.

Speaking about who gets the nod to start in post, Otto Addo said, “I am not quite sure yet. I left it open. I have to say that Ati-Zigi had a good match. I gave him the start because he is a regular player in his club”

“Frederick is new and young. I think he made a good first impression. He is very, very calm on the ball and has a good technique in the goal”

“Joseph Wollacott at the moment is not playing in his club so it's difficult to say that he will be the number one at the moment but I think tomorrow I will give him the chance to play and to show himself and we will keep on watching them and observing them and we will decide in June who will be the goalkeeper who will stand in the goal” he said.

With Ghana leading the head-to-head record 7-3, Addo's side aims to maintain their dominance over Uganda. Their most recent encounter in October 2017 ended in a goalless draw during the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The game will be streamed on the Ghana Football App and the official Ghana Football Association YouTube page.
