Ghana defeated Nigeria 4-1 in the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations final on Sunday, avenging an earlier group stage defeat to the Super Eagles and winning $100 000 in prize-money. Patrick Razak proved to be an inspired substitution for the Black Stars, with the diminutive winger winning two penalties and providing an assist for the fourth goal. Nigeria were on the back foot from the first whistle, and while the defence managed to withstand the pressure for large parts of the opening half, they offered very little going forward. The injury enforced substitution of centre-half Olamilekan Adeleye coincided with the floodgates opening as Stephen Sarfo opened the scoring in the 44th minute, impressively controlling the ball before firing through a sea of bodies.
