Former Ghana Premier League top scorer Eric Beokoe wants to see Aduana Stars striker Yahaya Mohammed invited into the Black Stars squad for the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Sudan next month.

Yahaya has been on a purple patch of form, having hit 10 goals.

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," Bekoe, who won the top scorer's award in 2007-2008, 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."

New Black Stars coach CK Akonnor is expected to name his first squad for the double-header against Sudan.
