WAFU Cup 2017: Ghana thrash Super Eagles 4-1 to win competition


Ghana's team of local footballers on Sunday thrashed their counterparts from Nigeria by 4 goals to 1 in the final of the 2017 West African Football Union Cup of Nations championship at the Cape Coast stadium.

Nigeria went into the encounter unbeaten with Super Eagles' goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa hoping to finish the tournament without conceding a goal, but he was badly exposed by Nigerian defenders and his wings were clipped.

By far the more impressive side on the day, the Black Stars continued attacking with pace and defended with grit as the Super Eagles found it hard to create any clear cut chance, save for Rabiu Ali's 30th minute strike which deflected off Samuel Sarfo.

Sarfo put Ghana ahead in the 43rd minute of the game with a sensational strike before completing his brace from the spot in the dying embers.

Vincent Atingah stepped up for the Nigerians and doubled their lead with a well-placed spot-kick, 2-0.

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

"It was a good lesson for us", said Salisu after the final between two long-time rivals. The tournament was good.

It was a cagey start to the game from both teams with neither venturing too far forward early on.

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

Emmanuel Lomotey was in the thick of the action again ten minutes later, pouncing on a loose ball inside the box but he was magnificently denied by the acrobatics of the Nigerian keeper from 14-yards out.
