The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has issued a statement revealing that Goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott is fine and will be involved in training on Wednesday.
Jojo Wollacott who’s returning to the national team after the missing the 2022 World Cup due to a finger injury suffered another injury while training with the team on Tuesday evening.
The Charlton goalkeeper suffered the injury after a goalpost toppled over and fell on him during training at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium earlier today.
Initially fears were that the goalkeeper could miss Ghana’s games against Angola scheduled for Thursday, March 23 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and Monday, March 27, 2023 in Luanda.
However, the Ghana FA has dumped those fears, revealing in the statement that the goalkeeper is fine and will be involved in training on Wednesday.
“Goalkeeper Joseph Wollacott hobbled off during training on Tuesday evening after suffering a soft tissue contusion of the right big toe,” read the statement.
“He was immediately assessed by the medical team and given emergency treatment. Wollacott was later reassessed in the medical room at the team hotel and currently, there are no major medical worries since the player is almost pain free.”
“The medical team would like to assure the football public that Wollacott will be available for selection as he has been cleared to train on Wednesday,” the statement ended.
