WAFU Cup: Ghana can't stop us, says coach Salisu”

Abuja - Mr Lawrence Katken, Nigeria National League (NNL) official, on Saturday, predicted victory for home-based Super Eagles over their Ghanaian counterparts in the West African Football Union (WAFU) finals on September 24.

Kizito gave them the lead in the 31st minute after heading in a corner, and Sarfo made it 2-0 in the 78th minute by finishing off a cross with a tap-in.

In their first meeting in their last Group A game, Nigeria triumphed 2-0, thanks to goals from Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji.

Salisu Yusuf's men conquered ten-man Benin Republic 1-0 courtesy of Rabiu Ali 11th minute goal at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday, and will face Ghana in the final of the competition.

"I'm very sad that up till this moment I've not gotten a goal", he said.

The impressed spectators in the stands responded to the goal with more celebration, giving a foretaste of what the Sunday's final would be like, as they eagerly await to witness how the Stars will avenge the loss they suffered at the hands of Nigeria last Monday. "We have been improving games after games and for us to recover from the defeat to Nigeria in the group stages means a lot of work was done", Konadu said.

With players such as skipper Isaac Twum, Amos Frimpong, Winful Cobinnah, Vincent Atinga, Samuel Sarfo, Thomas Abbey, Emmanuel Lomotey, Kwame Kizito and Stephen Sarfo, Coach Konadu has players who have shown promise and are fired up to deliver the WAFU Cup to Ghanaians, especially after their failure to qualify for next year's African Football Championship (CHAN).
