Eagles will rise above WAFU Cup loss for CHAN - Ezenwa

Nigeria coach Salisu Yusuf has admitted his team have learnt a few good lessons after they were thumped 4-1 in tonight's WAFU Cup final in Cape Coast.

The Blacks Stars' victory, which was a sweet revenge after their 2-0 by the Super Eagles in the group stages, was made possible by Stephen Sarfo, who scored a brace, Atinga and Cobbina, who grabbed a goal each in the game.

While, Rabiu Ali scored a stunning free kick late in the game, but it could not change anything as the Eagles settled for second place.

"The Ghanaians prepared for the match like an AFCON final and they were not to blame with the win being a consolation for the CHAN miss and shaky world cup qualification displays", he said.

The fans, on Monday in Abakaliki, said that several factors contributed to the team's loss and advised the NFF to address them instead of overhauling the team.

The fresh measures followed the sixth and most powerful nuclear test conducted by Pyongyang earlier this month. As a result, the USA must "make sure all options are under development", he said on ABC's "This Week".

The Nigerian clean sheet stretched to 494 minutes before Stephen Sarfo broke the deadlock a minute before half-time in a match watched by Confederation of African Football president Ahmad.

Meanwhile, Ezenwa, who did not concede a goal until the final, was deservedly awarded the Best Goalkeeper of the tournament, while Ghana's Isaac Twum was crowned the Best player of the tournament.

"The players have been together for long and duly qualified for the CHAN competition".

The Black Stars have claimed 19 wins - compared to 11 for the Super Eagles - and outscored their opponents 72 goals to 44 in the process.

"For me the level of the competition was high". They were poor in every department of the WAFU Cup final except in the goal area where Ikechukwu Ezenwa did his best to emerge the Best Goal Keeper of the tournament.
