2022 WCQ: 15 ‘keepers being considered for Ghana vs Nigeria – Kingson

Richard Kingson, Ghana’s goalkeepers’ trainer, has revealed that 15 players are in line for selection for the Black Stars’ 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying playoff games against Nigeria.

Some Ghanaians have expressed dissatisfaction with the performances of Joseph Wollacott at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), but Kingson is standing his ground on the Swindon Town goalkeeper’s position as Ghana’s number one.

“Personally, I know Jojo Wollacott is a very good goalkeeper and I can also throw a question to the public that they should watch the matches very well and they will realize he did not make any mistake in all the three goals he conceded,” the former Ghana captain told Precise FM.

“The public also have their opinion and nothing to challenge about so we are just moving forward and hope for the best,” he added.

Ahead of the two deciding playoff games in late March, Kingson said he is keeping an eye on 15 goalkeepers including Richard Attah and Ibrahim Danlad of Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko respectively.

On Attah and Danlad’s performances in the Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko Ghana Premier League Super Clash, Kingson told Hot FM:

“They played on Sunday, great performances from these two quality goalkeepers and I am sure they will be considered for Black Stars call-ups, their quality is very high.

“I have about fifteen (15) goalkeepers I am monitoring for the Black Stars. Some are in Africa especially Mutawakilu Seidu [of Rangers International, Nigeria], [Joseph] Anang of West Ham United and a host of others.”

The Black Stars will host the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on March 25 in the first leg before the second leg comes off on March 29 in Abuja.
