WAFU Cup: Ezenwa Named Best Goalkeeper As Ghana Stars Sweep Awards

We'll win WAFU Cup to appease Ghanaians, say Emmanuel Lomotey

Ghana will play Nigeria on Sunday 23rd September, 2017 and kick off is 18: 00 GMT for the finals of the WAFU Cup 2017.

Nigeria pulled a consolation goal in added time as Rabiu Ali flawless inched free kick beat Ghana's Joseph Addo at his near post.

Sarfo, who was lurking in the 18 yard box, received a pass from Cobbinah, outwitted the defense of the visitors and placed the ball at the blind side of Nigeria goalie Ezenwa Ikechukwu, who remained rooted to the spot.

Striker Stephen Sarfo broke Nigeria's resistance few minutes from the first half break.

The Black Stars started the game sharper than they did in the semifinals win against Niger on Thursday.

"Aside the fact that Ghana played at home and played against their bitter rivals, they also wanted to take their pound of flesh from the Super Eagles who had beaten them 2-0 in the group stage of the competition".


In the 60th minute, just when the Super Eagles of Nigeria were chasing for an equalizer, substitute Patrick Razak got fouled by a Nigerian defender in the penalty box.

Dazed with the drubbing, the home based Eagles conceded a fourth in the 93rd minute despite Ghana being reduced to 10 men after Atingah was sent off for picking up his second yellow card.

In the 77th minute Ghana was awarded another penalty as Patrick Razak was tripped down by Eze and Stephen Sarfo made it 3-0 for Ghana and his second in the game.

Barrister Dalung said he will be in Ghana to motivate Nigeria's players who are mostly drawn from the Nigeria Professional Football league NPFL.

"We came into this competition under pressure because we lost to Burkina Faso at home and failed to qualify for the CHAN tournament", said Konadu.
