SWINDON Town goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott has been named in Ghana’s provisional squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifying double-header against Zimbabwe next month.

The 25-year-old shot-stopper – who could earn his first senior cap if selected to fly out to Africa in the next fortnight – joins the likes of Arsenal’s Thomas Partey, Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey, and Crystal Palace’s Jordan Ayew in the 32-man squad.

The Black Stars’ new head coach, Milovan Rajevac, was only appointed on September 24 and will have very little time to prepare his squad with the game against the Warriors of Zimbabwe taking place on Saturday, October 9 at the Cape Coast Stadium before travelling to Harare for the reverse fixture on Tuesday, October 12.

With travelling and quarantine rules factored in, Wollacott would certainly miss Town’s League Two clash away at Forest Green Rovers as well as the club’s EFL Trophy game away at Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday, October 12 – a fixture he would have been unlikely to play in anyway.

The 25-year-old will then likely miss Swindon’s League Two home match against Rochdale on Saturday, October 16 too.

Depending on the length of quarantine the goalkeeper has to undertake, Wollacott could also be absent for the away trip to Sutton United on Tuesday, October 19 as well as Swindon v Bradford City at the County Ground on Saturday, October 23.

With Town due to play Forest Green live on Sky Sports at lunchtime on Saturday, October 9, the chances of that game being postponed could dramatically increase if Anthony Grant and Kaine Kesler-Hayden link up with Jamaica and England U20, respectively across the upcoming international window.

Jamaica play the USA, Canada, and Honduras between October 8-14 – therefore Grant could well be absent from the Town squad for another considerable spell.

Meanwhile, England U20 are scheduled to play Italy at home on October 6 and the Czech Republic away on October 11. Kesler-Hayden could be released to play in the Forest Green game, but his schedule is currently unknown and will be clarified during Friday’s pre-match press conference.

Jonny Williams has already been called up to Wales’ World Cup qualifying squad therefore he will be unavailable for games against Forest Green and Plymouth, but should return for the Rochdale game the following Saturday.

Rob Page’s men are set to take on the Czech Republic and Estonia away before hosting Belarus in the upcoming international window.
