On Tuesday evening, during their training session at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, the Black Stars encountered a setback when goalkeeper Joseph Wollacott was hit by a falling goalpost.
This unfortunate incident occurred just after Wollacott had recovered from a finger injury that had prevented him from participating in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
After the incident, Wollacott was visibly in pain as he left the field with the help of the medical team. His condition has yet to be assessed, but he is expected to undergo a scan to determine the extent of his injury ahead of the team’s upcoming matches against Angola.
Ghana’s upcoming matches against Angola are part of a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header, with the first leg scheduled for March 23 and the reverse fixture taking place on March 27 in Luanda.
The Black Stars are currently joint top of the Group E table, having earned four points from their last two games, including a 3-0 victory over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw against the Central African Republic.
Wollacott’s injury could be a major blow for the Black Stars.
