This move is part of the motivation drive of the Federal Government to athletes ahead of the final match which will take place in the Cape Coast Metropolitan District of Central Ghana on Sunday.

Nigeria pulled a consolation goal in added time as Rabiu Ali ideal inched free kick beat Ghana's Joseph Addo at his near post.

"The Ghanaians prepared for the match like an AFCON final and they were not to blame with the win being a consolation for the CHAN miss and shaky world cup qualification displays", he said.

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.

"What do you expect from a team that did not prepare for a tournament only to assemble some players in Nigeria football league without camping to play in a competition like the WAFU Cup".

Sarfo, who was lurking in the 18 yard box, received a pass from Cobbinah, outwitted the defense of the visitors and placed the ball at the blind side of Nigeria goalie Ezenwa Ikechukwu, who remained rooted to the spot.
