Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has stated that England-based goalkeeper Joseph Luke Wollacott deserves to be Black Stars first choice goalkeeper.
The Serbian was speaking to the media after Ghana’s comfortable win over the Warriors of Zimbabwe on Saturday evening in Ghana at the Cape Coast stadium.
According to Milovan Rajevac, the 25-year-old deserved his starting berth in the team because he showed his mettle at the training camp before the game.
“It’s all about good scouting. Since he arrived in camp, he proved himself at the training sessions,” Milovan Rajevac told reporters after the game.
Though, the Swindon Town FC safest pair of hands failed to keep a clean sheet on his Ghana debut after conceding from spot-kick awarded Zimbabweans which was neatly dispatched by Knowledge Musona.
Nonetheless, the Serbian gaffer justified his decision to hand a starting berth to the debutant, citing his impressive output during training sessions.
“He did very well and deserves the chance [to start for Ghana]. I was satisfied with his performance in today’s game. I don’t want to praise him much but he did a good job for the team”, Milovan Rajevac said.
