Ghana goalkeeper Jojo Wallocott speaks about victory over Nigeria in World Cup qualifier

Black Stars goalkeeper Jojo Wallocott says that “spirit was high” in camp and that “everyone was ready and focused” ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against Nigeria.

Ghana defeated Nigeria in two legs to book a place in the World Cup in Qatar. The Black Stars earned a 1-1 draw in Abuja to qualify after the first leg ended 0-0.

“The spirit was high and everybody was ready and focused. When you come to Ghana the expectation is high. So when we went there we knew we had to focus and get the job done and that’s what we did”, he told Happy FM.

Wallocott made his debut in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Zimbabwe in Cape Coast last September.

He produced an assured performance in Ghana’s 3-1 victory and has since been the team’s safest pair of hands.

So far, the 25-year-old has made nine appearances, three of which were at the 2021 Africa Cup and two of which were against Nigeria.

Wallocott was recently named Goalkeeper of the Season in the English League Two.

He has also been nominated for Swindon Town Player of the season.

Swindown will be keen to tie him down to a new contract with his deal running out in the summer.
