Ghana first choice custodian Joseph Wollacott has reacted to Black Stars’ World Cup qualification against Nigeria as the Swindon Town goalkeeper talks about how he personally prepared for the double-header against the Super Eagles.
With Wollacott starting both games, Ghana drew 0-0 against the Super Eagles in Kumasi before drawing 1-1 in Abuja to pick a slot at the finals of the FIFA World Cup to be played in Qatar later this year.
The Super Eagles goal came from the spot , meaning Wollacott did not concede a goal from open play.
‘There was pressure on the game, not just to qualify for the World Cup but for the bragging rights of the country, but I just went into it treating it like another game of football.
I didn’t put too much pressure on myself and I’m obviously buzzing and delighted.” the Ghana goalkeeper told the media department of Swindon Town FC.
“I’m not that superstitious but I just made sure I had a solid week of training, I eat well and slept right and that gives you confidence” he revealed.
Meanwhile Ghana has been drawn in the same World Cup group as Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay.
