Ex-Ghana junior international, Ali Jarrah has lauded Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton for recalling goalkeeper Richard Ofori.

The Orlando Pirates shot stopper returned to the Black Stars for the final 2023 AFCON qualifier against Central Africa Republic on Thursday, September 7 at the Baba Yara Stadium.

It is the first time he will represent the four time African Champions once again since September 2022 after being ravaged by injuries.

Jarrah believes his return will solidify the goalkeeping ranks Of the four time World Cup participants.

“You know Richard Ofori is a tried and tested goalkeeper, he has been our number [but] due to injury.

“And we have [Lawrence] Ati Zigi who stood in at the World Cup [2022 Qatar] which he did very well, currently he is the number one.

“So currently we don’t have a problem in our [goalkeeping] department and we pray for injury free so that they will be able to play well.

“We have Richard Ofori as a stand-by then Manaf Nurudeen will be the supporting goalkeepers for them.

“I think we don’t have a problem with our goalkeepers at the moment.” Ali Jarrah told Radio Gold Sports.

Lawrence Ati-Zigi is the current number one goalkeeper and he has discharged his duties equitably.
