WAFU finals: Eagles have every reason to beat the Black stars says NNL
Mr Lawrence Katken, Nigeria National League official, on Saturday, predicted victory for home-based Super Eagles over their Ghanaian counterparts in the West African Football Union finals on September 24.
Katken made the prediction in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja while speaking on Nigeria’s expectations on the final match.
He said that Nigeria’s performance at the ongoing West African football tournament was a pointer to their lifting the trophy.
The NNL official, who expressed optimism in the ability of the CHAN Eagles to defeat Ghana, said bringing the cup home was non-negotiable.
“Nigeria has beaten Ghana in their last group matches, not just beating but with comfortable 2-0.
“Unless the boys either lose focus or are overconfident, they have everything and reason to beat Ghana,” he said.
Katken urged the team to repeat their feat over Ghana to validate their superiority in West African football.
Nigerian home-based super Eagles would slug it with Ghana in the WAFU finals in Cape Coast on Sunday, September 24.
The host, Ghana defeated Niger Republic 2-0 to scale through to finals, while Nigeria beat Benin 1-0 in the semifinals.punch
