Ghana Stop Niger To Set Up WAFU Cup Final Vs Nigeria

Nigeria’s home-based Super Eagles will face hosts Ghana in the final of the 2017 West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Cup of Nations following Ghana’s 2-0 win against Niger Republic in the second semi-final on Thursday night.

In the first semi-final earlier on Thursday, Nigeria pipped 10-man Benin Republic 1-0 thanks to Rabiu Ali’s 11th minute goal.

A goal in either half by Kwame Kizito and Stephen Sarfo secured the win for Ghana against Niger and a place in the final on Sunday in Cape Coast.

Kizito gave them the lead in the 31st minute after heading in a corner.
