Ghana Under-17 assistant coach Isaac Opeele Boateng claims Yahaya Mohammed possess the strongest firepower in the current Black Stars set-up. Â
The 24-year-old was a surprised inclusion in the provisional 26-man squad named by Kwesi Appiah after a stand-out performance for Amidaus Professionals in the Ghana Premier League.
He has scored 9 goals in 11 matches so far, with most of the goals coming from expertly taken free-kicks.
The Ghana Uner-17 male coach claims the on-loan Asante Kotoko versatile playerâ€™s ferocious strikes surpasses his fellow strikers.
â€œI donâ€™t think you can point to any of the players he (Kwesi Appiah) has selected who doesnâ€™t deserve to be there,â€ Opeele told Asempa FM
â€œWith Yahaya, whenever you put a free-kick around the opponentâ€™s penalty box, then itâ€™s a goal that youâ€™ve got there.
â€œThe kind of shot he plays, no keeper can stop.
â€œThe list that he has come out with gives me confidence that he can go and do something special.
â€œYahaya Mohammed for instance is a good addition which shows Kwesi will give you the chance if you prove it.
â€œYahaya is scoring goals for fun playing behind the strikers at Amidaus and he has scored more goal than the whole Kotoko team.
â€œTo me its Amidaus coach Tony Lokko that deserves all the praises.
The former OGC Nice midfielder is likely to make the final 23-man cut for the continental showpiece.
