Nigeria vs. Benin- Friday Ubong Anthony Okpotu

From one of such raids in the Nigeria defence, rasta-haired Sarfo capitalised on a loose ball around the visitors 18-yard box and unleashed a grounder which went straight into the net for Ghana's imminent opener on the 43rd minute.

So while it was the flawless story ending for Ghana's Black Stars B, it was an anti-climax for the Nigerians who were forced to suffer a 1-4 humiliation in yesterday's final watched by a capacity crowd.

The Black Stars clobbered arch-rivals Nigeria 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday, September 24 to defend the title they won four years ago on home soil.

In the 33rd minute, goalkeeper Ezenwa Ikechukwu pulled a great save to deny Isaac Twum.

Nigeria hit a consolation goal through Rabiu Ali later in additional time. There was no chance for Ezenwa.

Super Eagles Coach Salisu Yusuf looked quite anxious as he substituted NPFL top scorer Tony Okpotu who had a disappointing game with Kingsley Eduwo in a tactical move.

He traced the good run of the team to the recent turn around in the Nigeria Professional Football League which has continued to grow in leaps and bounds with an assurance that Nigerians will back them with their support and prayers.

The start of the second half failed to produce any fireworks until the 58th minute when substitute Patrick Razak was fouled inside the box, only a minute after coming on, and the referee pointed to the penalty spot.

Stephen Sarfo put the victory beyond doubt when he converted from the spot on 78 minutes to make it 3-0 and register his fourth goal fourth of the tournament.

Sarfo shot Ghana up in the 45th minute, causing Eagles to finally concede their first goal of the competition. Winful Cobbinah tapped home following a lovely work from Patrick Razak.
