Ghana thrash Nigeria 4-1 to win 2017 WAFU tournament

Nigeria vs. Benin- Friday Ubong Anthony Okpotu

The Westerlo FC of Lagos loanee was a surprise inclusion in Coach Salisu Yusuf's squad for the tournament and was impressive for the Home Eagles, helping them record five clean sheets during the tournament only to capitulate 4-1 in the final.

Eagles failed to match the form that previously earned them 2-0 victory against the hosts in their last game Group A on Monday.

Stephen Sarfo, who won the Golden Boot and was crowned Man of the Match, opened the goal feast a minute before halftime, before a 59th-minute goal by Vincent Atingah doubled their lead. However, the team has come good in the ongoing sub-regional tournament after recovering from a shaky start against Gambia and has now booked a ticket to the grand final after beating Niger 2-0 on Thursday.

It was the first time Nigeria had found conceded a goal in the competition and it came as a bitter pill to swallow as goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa let in four goals in 90 minutes.

Sarfo added the third - his second of the night - in the 77th minute as Ghana completely took charge of the game.

That was quickly followed by another penalty which was converted again by Atingah in the 78th-minute before Winful Cobbinah taped the ball into Nigeria's net for the 4th goal after a lovely work from Patrick Razak in the 93rd minute.

"We have to forge ahead and put this behind us".

Rabiu Ali's lone goal for Nigeria was the last kick of the game watched by CAF President, Ahmad and some of his executive committee members. Nigeria's lost, Ghana's won, but our jollof is still the no.1.
