New Black Stars goalkeeper, Jojo Wollacott has showed great potential of becoming Ghana's number one goalie on his first day of training with the Black Stars.
The 25-year-old Swindon Town goalkeeper was given his first invite by coach Milovan Rajevac following injury to first choice Richard Ofori.
In a video posted on the Ghana Football Association's YouTube page, Wollacot produced great reflexes while training with Richard Kinston and his colleagues.
In the absence of Richard Ofori, the position is there for the taking as Lawrence Ati Zigi, Richard Atta and Dan Lad Ibrahim all fight for a starting role.
