WAFU Cup: Nigeria coach claims Ghana are “beatable” ahead of much anticipated clash

Super Eagles of Nigeria coach Salisu Yusuf is upbeat about his side’s chances against Ghana in the last game of Group A in the ongoing WAFU Cup.

The Super Eagles, who prior to the WAFU tournament were heavily touted as one of the favorites to lift the cup, has failed to glitter in the competition.


Nigeria got off to flying start in the competition by sweeping away Sierra Leone 3-1 in the preliminary round.

However, they have failed 5o hit the back of the net in their opening two games of the group against Mali and Guinea respectively.

And only a win could save their blushes in the last game of the group against sworn rivals Ghana.

According to coach Yusuf, no team is unbeatable hence Ghana should be wary of them.

“I believe every team is beatable. When you get your tactics right on the day and take your chances, you will definitely win,” Yusuf told reporters.

“We’ll stick to our positive minds and see how we can beat them.”

Meanwhile, Ghana Coach Konadu insists that he was going to play his best side and down Nigeria in their last Group A match despite having already qualified for the semifinals.

“We started well against Mali but it wasn’t the best, but we managed to sail past our first opponents Gambia, then Guinea and now Mali,” said the Black Stars coach.

“Coming to the Group stage, we managed to play better than we did in the first match and today again against Mali the boys proved that they are a very difficult side to beat.

“They did their best for us and we can only thank them and urge them on to keep pushing.

“Now that we have qualified already we know how to meet Nigeria. We know matches between these two countries are always very difficult.

“So we are going to approach that match with all seriousness. I think we will use all the arsenals we have to go past Nigeria. We know they are a very good side.”

Ghana will take on Mali in their second match of the group at the Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday night in the WAFU cup of Nations.
