Ghana 4-1 Nigeria: Stephen Sarfo double seals Wafu Cup triumph

Konadu warns players ahead of Wafu final against Nigeria

Ghana dominated the encounter played at the Cape Coast Stadium as they overwhelmed their Nigerian counterpart.

Rabiu Ali's late strike from a free-kick was a mere consolation for the Nigerians.

The football enthusiasts however said the Ghanaians deserved to win the competition.

"The WAFU Cup final is a good example of a rivalry match".

Nigeria who got to the finals following their 1-0 win over Benin in the semi-final match were denied victory by a determined Ghana side who put up a strong performance to emerge winners.

On Sunday night, hosts and defending champions Ghana thumped long-standing rivals Nigeria 4-1 to retain the sub-regional tournament they also won two years ago.

Tesla, AMD May Be Teaming Up to Build Autopilot Chip for Cars
The CNBC report said that its sources tied AMD and Tesla together, but neither AMD or Tesla will comment on the situation. AI is a big topic at the moment and one Tesla found Elon Musk has certainly been vocal about in recent weeks.

However, Ghana was not done as they kept their pressure on Nigeria despite playing a man down and Ezenwa's poor handling of the ball inside his box gifted Winful Cobbinah with a goal after he was set up by Patrick Razak in the 93rd minute.

Okwudili Nwaolisa, a former Team Manager of Coal-City United FC of Enugu, said since the team had limited time to prepare for the CHAN tournament in 2018 it was necessary for the NFF to retain the players to ensure more blending. Nigeria goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa was beaten twice from the spot.

"The team never played together".

"We have seen Nigeria play most of their games in the afternoons, which had been very hard for them because of the scorching sun, now they would play in the evening and that would be a great atmosphere".

The Black Stars dominated the second half as Nigeria collapsed, and any hopes of a Nigeria comeback were ended when Sarfo completed his double from the penalty spot.
