Speaking to the press after the game at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, Arhinful commended both countries and urged them to produce a good final on Sunday.

Stephen Sarfo who was voted the man-of-the-match scored a brace for the Black Stars, while Vincent Atinga and Winful Cobbinah scored a goal each for the hosts.

Nigeria who will be facing Ghana for the second time in this competition won the WAFU Cup in 2010 while Ghana won it in 2013.

A reckless tackle by Stephen Eze on Patrick Razak as he was driving into the Nigerian box earned Ghana another penalty in the 77th minute.

Ghana goal scorer, Sarfo continued from where he stopped in the first half as he kept on causing headache for the Nigeria defence.

In the 60th minute, just when the Super Eagles of Nigeria were chasing for an equalizer, substitute Patrick Razak got fouled by a Nigerian defender in the penalty box.

He then offered his congratulations to the black stars of Ghana for a well-deserved victory.

Konadu was delighted his troops managed to cap an impressive display at the WAFU tournament with four goals in the final. "I'll thank the almighty God for bringing us this far and also congratulates our Coach and the playing body as well because without them, there wouldn't have been any team", he said.

Rabiu Ali's lone goal for Nigeria was the last kick of the game watched by CAF President, Ahmad and some of his executive committee members.

Niger Republic defeated Benin Republic 2-1 to finish third in the tournament.

"I suggest that Gernot Rohr takes over the team as it prepares for the CHAN competition and work seriously on Ikechukwu Ezenwa for the world cup qualifier against Zambia", he said.
