He’s been named in the Black Stars squad as one of four goalkeepers with Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Richard Atta and Ibrahim Danlad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying double-header against Zimbabwe this month.

Wollacott indicated that he had been contacted during his time at Bristol City but his invitation was delayed because of a lack of playing time.

In July this year, Wollacot moved from the Championship club to Swindon Town in the English fourth-tier and is their number one goalkeeper, playing 10 matches and kept four clean sheets.

“It was something I was aware of before but it was never going to happen because I wasn’t playing,” he adds.

“I found out on the Sunday after the game on Saturday last week. And it’s just happened quite fast. I just preparing myself and concentrating on the game on Saturday first and then let’s see what happens after when I leave for Ghana.”

“There’s some history with Ghana as they’ve done well at previous international tournaments,” adds the goalkeeper.

The 25-year-old was born in Bristol.
