Black Stars goalkeeper, Jojo Wollacott has revealed how he felt when the Black Stars came out as the better side when they played the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the World Cup qualifiers.
It could be recalled that the Black Stars qualified at the expense of Nigeria when they drew 1-1 in their second qualifier match in Abuja.
Speaking about this in a recent interview with his club, Swindon Town’s media, he said;
“It was probably one of the longest weeks I’ve had in my life but it seems it is all worth it. There was pressure on the game, not just to qualify for the World Cup but for the bragging rights of the country, but I just went into it treating it like another game of football, I didn’t put too much pressure on myself and I’m obviously buzzing and delighted.
I’m not that superstitious but I just made sure I had a solid week of training, I eat well and slept right and that gives you confidence.
Playing for Ghana, I didn’t realise before I went just how much expectation there is from the country and football is massive in Ghana, a lot of people follow it, so to deliver and make Ghana proud is the best feeling. It was probably one of the best feelings of my career.”
