And goalkeeper Kingson who observes the impressive performances of the ex Inter Allies striker on a regular basis wants an international opportunity for the young lad.

“He is doing very well as he amongst the top goalscorers in the league,” Kingson told Accra-based Montie FM.

“Not only his scoring ability but then his total contribution to the team is very impressive.

“Day in and day out he improves and I believe once he is a Ghanaian he should be given the chance.

“He is definitely a Black Stars material. If Ghanaians want to see him perform then they should give him a chance.”

Karikari is currently on loan at Balikesirspor from Swedish club AIK.
