JoJo Wollacott called up to Ghana National Team
JOJO WOLLACOTT has been handed his first international call up to the Ghana national team ahead of their upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers against Zimbabwe. The Swindon Town goalkeeper is part of a 32-man provisional squad named by coach Milan Rajevac.
Swindon Town look set to be without their number one shot-stopper JoJo Wollacott for upcoming matches against Forest Green Rovers and Plymouth Argyle with the 26-year-old earning his first international call-up as Ghana take on Zimbabwe in a double-header World Cup qualifier.
Wollacott will be part of the 32-man provisional squad that will play their first match against Zimbabwe at Ghana’s Cape Coast Sports Stadium on the 9th October before the Black Stars travel to Zimbabwe’s capital Harare three days later.
Under the government’s coronavirus guidelines Wollacott would have to quarantine for 10 days in a government-approved hotel due to Zimbabwe being one of the few countries still on the UK’s CO vid red list.
Discussions are currently ongoing with the EFL surrounding exemption for players returning from red list countries, however, with no decision yet to be made on the situation, Wollacott would also be unavailable for Swindon’s home fixture against Bradford City and possibly unable to feature in the away trip to Oldham Athletic.
Due to the two Ghana matches being World Cup Qualifiers, Swindon Town would also be unable to stop players leaving on international duty, with the choice to go or stay at the players' discretion.
