Accra Hearts of Oak head coach Frank Nuttall says Vincent Atingah has done remarkably well to establish himself in the local Black Stars B team.

The towering center back was handed a late call-up into the Black Stars B team before the WAFU tournament but that did not deter him as he slowly took a grip in the team and ended up being amongst the best players when Ghana won the WAFU Cup last Sunday.

Speaking to after the final in which Ghana beat Nigeria 4-1 with Vincent Atingah doubling the lead and taking his tournament tally to two goals, coach Nuttall said:

“I thought Atingah did very well. You know the frontline of Nigeria is a strong frontline and Nigeria can be good going forward so I thought he coped with that very well.

“He took his penalty in a very cool way as well. He has had a really good tournament because he did not start in the tournament.  He came into the team before the tournament for a short time so he has done remarkably well in a short period of time so very pleased for Vincent.”
