Goalkeeper Richard Ofori made a remarkable return to action for the Black Stars in Tuesday’s friendly against Liberia, marking his comeback almost a year after his last international appearance.
His absence was primarily due to recurring injuries, which also caused him to miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Ofori’s impressive performance in the match, where he came off the bench in the second half to replace Abdul Manaf Nurudeen, earned him applause from fans and showcased his goalkeeping prowess.
Despite his extended absence from international duty, Ofori displayed remarkable composure and skill on the field, reaffirming his quality as a goalkeeper. Notably, he handled a challenging pass with finesse, underscoring his value to the Black Stars. However, he may feel disappointed that Liberia managed to score a late consolation goal.
Currently, the starting goalkeeper position is occupied by Lawrence Ati Zigi of St Gallen. Ofori’s successful return to the national team serves as a testament to his resilience and determination to represent Ghana on the international stage.
He will undoubtedly be eager to maintain his fitness and compete for the coveted number one goalkeeper role.
