Ghanaian goalkeeper Fatau Dauda believes Joseph Wollacott has got enough quality to lead the Black Stars at the World Cup.
The 25-year-old since making his Black Stars debut in 2021 has been the team’s first choice under Otto Addo.
Wollacott made his maiden appearance under Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac in a World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe.
The England-based shot-stopper will compete with Richard Ofori, Manaf Nurudeen among other goalkeepers for the number one spot.
But Dauda has confidence in Wollacot’s abilities for the task ahead.
“I know folks will say that he conceded a lot of goals at the Afcon but if you look closely a lot of the goals scored were not his fault.
“He is a goalkeeper who has good technique and his tactical play is also very good.
“He can play with his feet and his positioning is good as well. This is why he is the preferred choice of the coaches,” he told Citi Sports in an interview.
Jojo Wollacott led Ghana to the 2022 Fifa World Cup with a stellar performance in the qualifier against Nigeria.
The Stars drew 1-1 in Abuja to book their fourth qualification at the World in the last five editions.
