WAFU Cup: Nigeria were better than us, admits Ghana coach

"I was unable to watch the match but the fact that they won 2-0 showed they have woken up and can only get better in their subsequent games".

Day 11 of the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations will take place on Thursday, September 21 with both semifinals taking place at Cape Coast Sports Stadium where Ghana will face Niger and Benin will take on Nigeria. We look forward to the semifinals with confidence.

Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji Moses, who emerged Man of the Match, scored for the Super Eagles after the break in the match the Salisu Yusuf coached side needed to win to remain in the tournament. They need to prepare very well for their semi final game with the conviction that they can win it and qualify for the final.

"But we are now trying to see how we can make it regular, just like the COSAFA Cup, and this year marks the beginning of an attempt to make it feature on the West African football calendar".

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that it was another tale of stalemate for Nigeria as they played out a 0-0 draw with Guinea in tightly contested game at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Saturday.

The result took both Nigeria and Ghana into the semi-finals of the tournament from Group A.

The Ghanaian sports journalist added that the Nigeria/Ghana fixture in the group phase has already done a big favour for the competition.

The semi-final matches come up on Thursday after the last group matches in Group B must have been concluded.

Niger top the standings with four points, followed by Senegal and Benin in second and third place respectively with three points, while Cote d'Ivoire are last with one point.
