Share

The Black Stars of Ghana who had lost in a 2-0 match with Eagles in the group stage, returned with fury to defeat Nigeria.

Nigeria pulled a consolation goal in added time as Rabiu Ali ideal inched free kick beat Ghana's Joseph Addo at his near post. Sunday will be a new chapter we have to open and we will do so by trying to beat Nigeria.

Ghana goal scorer, Sarfo continued from where he stopped in the first half as he kept on causing headache for the Nigeria defence.

In the 60th minute, just when the Super Eagles of Nigeria were chasing for an equalizer, substitute Patrick Razak got fouled by a Nigerian defender in the penalty box.

When Ghana were awarded another spot-kick 13 minutes from time, Sarfo scored to raise his competition goal tally to four and put the outcome of the final beyond doubt.

It would also limit spending for Medicaid , the federal-state program that now covers more than 70 million low-income people. McCain was the deciding vote in July, his "no" vote scuttling a narrow Obamacare repeal bill that McConnell had offered.

The Salisu Yusuf-led side began the brighter and missed a number of early opportunities, with Rabiu Ali's free-kick well saved by Ghana's keeper Joe Addo before left-back Chima Akas' low cross was cleared away by Samuel Sarfo of Ghana.

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.

"I think the two best teams of the competition have qualified to the finals and we hope they would give us a better game on Sunday".

For players plying their trade on the domestic scene, it is enough motivation for them to go all out as Ghana and Nigeria rekindle their long rivalry in football.

The Super Eagles defeated 10-man Benin Republic 1-0 in the semi-final of the championship to set up a date with the Black Stars.
