Retired Black Stars and Real Tamale United goalkeeper Abukari Damba insists that Orlando Pirates shot-stopper Richard Ofori is still the first choice pair of hands for the Black Stars despite Jojo Wollacott‘s two important victories for the Black Stars in his derby against “The Warriors” of Zimbabwe in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Abukari Damba reacting to a question during an interview on Happy FM fumed that Swindon goalie Jojo is the caretaker; Ofori will take over the number spot for the Black Stars after he recovers from injury.
“For now, Jojo is a caretaker; he is good potential for the future of the Black Stars. He is making the goalkeeping department more competitive. I will applaud the Black Stars scouting team for scouting such a young player for the future, that is very great”.

“It takes a lot to become established in the goalkeeping department, but I’m happy for him. The opportunity was given to him, and he adapted himself quickly. But the adaptation will take some time. Even though in our first game we won, he conceded a goal through a spot-kick, but he wasn’t tested in the post”.
Damba added that; “Jojo wasn’t put under pressure, so we haven’t seen him under pressure. We haven’t seen Jojo in a different situation and circumstance. Fortunately, in the second leg, he didn’t concede; superb for his confidence. But we saw that under pressure, he fumbled a bit. Normally, it has to take time to build that capacity and conference, and we can’t say is a done deal. They still have some work to do on him”, he concluded.
