WAFU 2017: It's a Ghana-Nigeria final as Black Stars beat Niger 2-0

Kwame Kizito celebrates after scoring the first goal

Ghana have qualified for the grand final of the 2017 WAFU tournament with a 2-0 victory over Niger on at the Cape Coast Stadium Thursday.

Looking sharper than they did in their last group game where they lost 2-0 to Nigeria, the local Black Stars created many decent chances in the opening 30 minutes but had to wait till the 31st minute to break the deadlock.

Hearts of Oak striker, Kwame Kizito sent home a powerful header from a corner to give the Stars the lead and register his second goal of the tournament.

Niger failed to threaten the Ghana goal and the host nation took their 1-0 advantage to the dressing room.

The story was no different in after the recess as Ghana continued from where they left off.

Injuries took their toll on the Nigeriens, leaving Ghana to dominate the second half.

Stephen Sarfo sealed the victory with 15 minutes remaining with his second goal of the tournament.

Ghana's Emmanuel Lomotey was adjudged the 'Man of the Match'.

The victory which could be described as a holiday gift for Ghanaians is arguably the Stars' best performance in the tournament so far.

It puts them against Nigeria, their sworn rivals, who beat Benin 1-0 earlier on in the other semi final in a mouthwatering final on Sunday.
