Former Asante Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe, says Yahaya Mohammed deserves a Black Stars call-up following his brilliant form in the Ghana Premier League.

The Aduana Stars kingpin has been in a scintillating form for the two-time Ghana Premier League champions, having hit 10 goals after Match-week 10 so far.

He currently stands as the joint-top scorer, challenged by Victorien Adebayor of Inter Allies.

“Yahaya deserves to be in the team [Black Stars] because he is doing it for Aduana Stars,” the former Ghana Premier League goal king said as reported by Footballghana.


“We don’t have to argue whether or not the player should be handed a call-up.

“If he is performing why should he be left out of the squad,” he said.

The 31-year-old has also featured for the likes of Ashanti Kotoko, Tema Youth and Amidaus Professionals.

A fully-capped Ghana international, who made his debut in a 2007 friendly against Senegal, Yahaya represented Ghana at the 2011 African Nations Championship in Sudan.

New Black Stars coach C.K. Akonnor is expected to name his first squad for a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Sudan next month.
