WAFU Cup: Ghana Coach Promises Nigeria Tough Final
The Super Eagles of Nigeria have been promised a tough time in Sunday’s WAFU Cup final game billed to take place in Cape Coast.
Ghana coach, Maxwell Konadu has stated that his team will be all out to avenge their earlier 2-0 loss to the Super Eagles in Sunday’s final.
The Super Eagles stunned the Black Stars 2-0 on Monday in a final Group A match, but Konadu said they have overcome injuries to key players and will fight to keep their sub-regional crown in front of their home fans in Cape Coast.
“We will be very prepared for Nigeria. They beat us last time so we have to come out strong to turn the table against them come Sunday,” Konadu said after his team brushed aside Niger 2-0 Thursday night to reach the championship game.
“They are a very good side, but we have to fight very hard.
“You know we are the defending champions, but that now belongs to history. Sunday will be a new chapter we have to open and we will do so by trying to beat Nigeria.
“The last time (we met), we had issues as regards injuries, but I hope we have all the players fit on Sunday and we will come very, very strong against Nigeria.
“It won’t be an easy game, they won’t find it easy as well.”
The WAFU Cup champions will win a prize money of $100,000,while the beaten finalists pocket $50,000.
