Arhinful Extols Ghana and Nigeria As Worthy Finalists


“Ghana and Nigeria are worthy finalists” – Augustine Arhinful

Augustine Arhinful, former member of the

Black Stars says Ghana and Nigeria are worthy finalists of the 2017

FOX WAFU Cup of Nations.

The local Black Stars emerged 2-0 winners over Niger, a few hours

after Nigeria had recorded a 1-0 win over Benin in the other Semi-

final match of the Competition.

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.

“I think the two best teams of the competition have qualified to

the finals and we hope they would give us a better game on Sunday.

“We have seen Nigeria play most of their games in the afternoons,

which had been very difficult for them because of the scorching sun,

now they would play in the evening and that would be a great


“Ghana lost 0-2 to Nigeria in the Group stage and will have to

strategize well to overcome the Nigerians on Sunday. They are strong

in defence but I am sure the Stars and the technical team know what to

do to defeat the Nigerians.

“They should be able to correct whatever went wrong in the first

game and come out stronger on Sunday,” Augustine Arhinful said.
