WAFU Cup: Kizito, Sarfo send Ghana to the Finals

Ghana’s Black Stars B side recorded a deserving 2-0 win over Niger to book a place in Sunday’s final for the 2017 WAFU tournament in Cape Coast on Thursday evening.

Hearts of Oak striker Kwame Kizito powered the Stars into a 33rd minute lead with a glorious header from a Winful Cobbinah corner kick before Kotoko’s workaholic Stephen Sarfo sealed the evening for Ghana with a brilliant finish 10 minutes from time.

Niger’s Menas physically dominated the Black Stars B but the hosts employed their awesome and flamboyant movements to nick it before a packed to capacity Cape Coast Stadium.
