Ghana 4 - 1 Nigeria...Stars Win WAFU 2017 Tournament

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 minutes of the encounter.

"Playing before a vociferous Ghanaian crowd destabilized the players as majority were facing such situation for the first time in their careers".

Ghana have now successfully defended the title they hosted and won back in 2013.

They are strong in defence but I am sure the Stars and the technical team know what to do to defeat the Nigerians.

"Overall, I will say the home-based Eagles had a good competition, but losing to Ghana by a scandalous scoreline in the final was blight on their performance", he said.

"We started slowly but we gathered momentum and everything went well for us".

"That brought a bit of pressure onto the team but when we re-grouped, we made sure that we spoke among ourselves and made it a point that we are coming to this tournament to at least appease for the loss".

"You know we are the defending champions, but that now belongs to history".

Ezenwa, who did not concede any goal before the final game, was awarded the best goalkeeper award.

Winful Cobbinah added the fourth in injury time with Nigeria's Buhari getting a late consolation.

"It won't be an easy game, they won't find it easy as well". We are more than ready to confront them and give them more than they expect.

"We have learnt some lessons but we can not always win". "We want that winning mentality to remain all the way to the CHAN finals early next year".

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