Nigeria vs. Benin- Friday Ubong Anthony Okpotu

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

The final match-up between giants, Ghana and Nigeria, was a fitting end to an exciting WAFU Cup of Nations tournament, but no one could imagine how it was going to end.

"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.

Nigeria pulled a consolation goal in added time as Rabiu Ali ideal inched free kick beat Ghana's Joseph Addo at his near post.

Ghana avenged their 2-0 group stage defeat to the home-based Eagles with a convincing 4-1 win to emerge champions.

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.

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

When Ghana were awarded another spot-kick 13 minutes from time, Sarfo scored to raise his competition goal tally to four and put the outcome of the final beyond doubt.

Ghana and Nigeria have met in 49 previous matches, according to Federation Internationale de Football Association statistics.

It became 2-0 when Patrick Razaq was tripped in the box and Vincent Atinga sent Ezenwa the wrong way from the penalty spot. This game will be a great opportunity to redeem our image after we failed to qualify for the 2018 CHAN.

"We are aware that the task will not be easy as Ghana Nigeria encounter is always a hard one, but we are braced for the challenge they will bring on board".
