A goalpost struck and injured Black Stars goalkeeper, Joseph Wollacott during the team’s training at the Baba Yara Stadium on Tuesday, March 21.

Wollacott had reportedly sustained an injury following the incident which left the team worried for a moment.


The Charlton Athletic shot-stopper had to be assisted to get back to his feet before being taken off the pitch as he limped.

The Ghana Football Association, meanwhile, has released a statement to confirm the player has made full recovery and is available for Wednesday’s training.

“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 said.

The Black Stars are currently in Kumasi where they will face Angola on Thursday, March 23, in one of two matches to be played as part of the qualification for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
