Inter Allies coach Tony Lokko believes Medeama's shot-stopper Eric Ofori-Antwi merited a Black Stars call up than Hearts of Oak's Richard Attah.

According to him, the Medeama SC goalkeeper is far better than Richard Attah who was handed his first Black Stars call up on Tuesday.

Attah was recently adjudged Hearts of Oak's Player of the Month for February, having made five appearances and kept an impressive four clean sheets in the process, however, Lokko insists Ofori-Antwi deserves that spot as he has gone through the national team mill.

"Although I am not a goalkeepers trainer I believe Medeama SC goalkeeper, Eric Ofori-Antwi is far far better than Hearts of Oak SC Richard Attah," Lokko told Happy FM.

"Why am I saying so, Ofori has gone through the mill from under 20, 23 and he is also a regular with Medeama and his performance this season is top-notch."

"So I was of the view he will get the nod ahead of Hearts of Oak's Richard Attah."

Akonnor on Tuesday, March 3 announced his 23-man squad for the upcoming AFCON 2021 qualifying matches against Sudan later this month.
