Ghana head coach Otto Addo has hailed Black Stars goalkeeper Lawrence Ati Zigi for his great performances in the opening two at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Since becoming the first choice, Ati Zigi has been in post for the two games Ghana has played at the World Cup and has turned up impressively to hold the team.
The St. Gallen shot-stopper despite conceding three goals against Portugal made some important saves before also turning up big for the clash against South Korea, drawing plaudits from his coach.
‘’I think it’s been a great tournament up to this point for him, he really did well especially in the last game, he had some great saves,’’ Addo told the GFA Media.
‘’We knew before that the goalkeepers we have are almost all on the same level so it was very, very sad when we got the news that Joseph Wollacott and Richard Ofori were not able to come due to injuries.”
‘’But on the other hand, we were surely confident that we have other goalkeepers like Ati Zigi, Manaf Nurudeen and also Danlad Ibrahim who are really doing well in training and Zigi obviously playing very, very, good,” he added.
The goalkeeper is in line to start once again when Ghana play Uruguay on Friday.
