We'll win WAFU Cup to appease Ghanaians, say Emmanuel Lomotey

Konadu warns players ahead of Wafu final against Nigeria

Nigeria's lost, Ghana's won, but our jollof is still the no.1.

"Although we won the WAFU tournament, the expectation was the CHAN qualification, so based on that, people would say Maxwell couldn't live up to expectation".

The Black Stars second goal came in the 58 minute through a penalty awarded to Ghana after Patrick Razak who came on as substitute was tripped down in the box and Vincent Atinga made no mistake from the spot sending Ezenwa the wrong way.

"Not the best of result for Super Eagles against Ghana, but many positives to take home".

"They are a very good side, but we have to fight very hard".

Lomotey was in the thick of the action again ten minutes later, pouncing on a loose ball inside the box but he was magnificently denied by the acrobatics of the Nigerian keeper from 14-yards out.

"It won't be an easy game, they won't find it easy as well".

Dismissing the report yesterday, Enyimba's Jude Anyadufu said the former African champions were looking for a coach, adding, "We are satisfied with our coach, so I don't know where that story is coming from".

Victory swelled the Ghana Football Association bank balance by US$100,000 thanks to sponsorship from an American news channel, with Nigeria receiving US$50,000.

"We came into this competition under pressure because we lost to Burkina Faso at home and failed to qualify for the CHAN tournament", said Konadu.

Ghana will play Nigeria on Sunday 23rd September, 2017 and kick off is 18: 00 GMT for the finals of the WAFU Cup 2017.
