A determined Ghana thrashed arch-rivals Nigeria 4-1 to retain their WAFU Cup title tonight at a packed Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

It was a sweet revenge for the Black Stars, who lost 2-0 to the same team in a group game on Monday.

Stephen Sarfo opened scoring for Ghana a minute to half time when he turned sharply inside the box to fire past goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa for the first goal he will concede in this tournament.

It was Sarfo’s third goal of the competition.

Ghana doubled their lead in the 58th minute, when substitute Patrick Razak caused a penalty and Atingah shot past Ezenwa.

The dribbling Razak will then get Stephen Eze to cause another penalty in the 77th minute and Man of the Match Sarfo stepped forward to put away his fourth goal of the championship.

A blunder by Ezenwa eventually led to Cobbina also registering his name on the score board.

Rabiu Ali netted a consolation goal in stoppage time with a superb free kick, which beat goalkeeper Joe Addo hollow.

Also in stoppage time, Ghana’s Atingah was sent off after a second booking.

After a scrappy start by both teams, Ghana poured forward with a lot more purpose.
