Defender Perry Amofa has been called up to the Ghana national U-20 side, the Black Satellites ahead of some impending international assignments.

And, the Auroras player is hoping to make the most of this opportunity as he begins camping with other 69 players also called to camp.

The 70 players are the second badge of players called up by Coach Abdul Karim Zito and his technical team as they seek to put together a strong squad that would represent the nation in upcoming assignments.

Ghana will be participating in the West Africa Zone B tournament in Togo later this year as well as the qualifiers for the next African Youth Championships.

“I am a very happy with this call-up and, I will give it my all to make it into the final squad”, a happy Amofa told Hearts Media.

He added: “I see this invitation as progress in my career and, I take up this challenge fully, hoping that it would bolster my chances going forward.”

“I have been working hard on my game even in this Covid-19 period and, I hope to make the most of the opportunity presented me at this time.”

And, the youngster has received massive backing from Hearts’ head Coach Edward Odoom who said, the player has improved tremendously and wished him very well in this adventure.

“He is a very hard-working guy, and, I am very happy with the progress he has made and wish him all the best at the national team level”, Coach Odoom said of the defender.

He is on the fringes of being promoted to the Hearts senior team, and, the player believes he can step up to this level to challenge for a place in the team.

He is the second Auroras player to be called up to the national U-20 side with striker Franklyn Owusu being part of the first badge of players called up by Coach Zito.
