WAFU Cup: Ezenwa Named Best Goalkeeper

NAN reports that hosts Black Stars emerged champions of the 2017 West African Football Union (WAFU) Cup of Nations after beating the Super Eagles 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Tormentor-in-chief Sarfo stepped up to bury the kick in the net as he grabbed his brace and 4th goal of the tournament.

The Black Stars of Ghana who had lost in a 2-0 match with Eagles in the group stage, returned with fury to defeat Nigeria.

Ezenwa was definitely at his best in the 35th minute with another superb save, diving low to his left to turn a low 18-yard shot from Isaac Twum around the post.

The tempo of the game picked up from where it left off when the second half resumed, with Patrick Razak, who replaced Gideon Waja, racing into the Nigerian area with the ball and was fouled in the process. Soon after, defence stalwart, Adeleye Aniyikaye copped an injury, prompting his substitution by Ariwachukwu Emmanuel.

But the humiliation was not over for Nigeria as Winful Cobbinah scored a fourth goal for rampant Ghana three minutes into stoppage time.

The Black Stars had the chance to increase their lead, when substitute Patrick Razaq was tripped in the box. The resultant penalty was converted by Vincent Atingah for Ghana's second goal on the night and his third in the competition.

The defender who comically added that despite the fact that Nigeria lost the match that the country's jollof rice is still better than that of Ghana.

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

"If the coach can talk to the players on some of these issues, I believe it will give us a ideal result against the Black Stars on Sunday".

Nigeria reduced the deficit with what seemed to be the last action of the game through Rabiu Ali.
