Nigeria lost to Ghana but our jollof rice is no1 - Leon Balogun

We'll win WAFU Cup to appease Ghanaians, say Emmanuel Lomotey

The home-based Super Eagles received $65,000 (about N24million), despite losing 4-1 to Ghana, in the final of this year's West African Football Union (WAFU) Cup.

The defender who comically added that despite the fact that Nigeria lost the match that the country's jollof rice is still better than that of Ghana.

Ghana had also previously won the tournament in 2013 when the country hosted it.

"The former Ghana worldwide is most likely to take the job given that he has been demoted as the first assistant of Ghana's senior national team", it said.

"We will be very prepared for Nigeria".

"We have seen Nigeria play most of their games in the afternoons, which had been very hard for them because of the scorching sun, now they would play in the evening and that would be a great atmosphere".

"It was a good lesson for us", said Salisu after the final between two long-time rivals.




"Enyimba's officials have already made contact with the coach but will fly to Ghana to hold further talks".

Straight from kick off, the Ghanaians showed they were out to avenge that earlier group stage defeat.

"It won't be an easy game, they won't find it easy as well".

"Ghana deserved their victory as they created more chances than we did".

"We know how they operate but it'll not be easy".

"We came into this competition under pressure because we lost to Burkina Faso at home and failed to qualify for the CHAN tournament", Konadu said after their victory.

This move is part of the motivation drive of the Federal Government to athletes ahead of the final match which will take place in the Cape Coast Metropolitan District of Central Ghana on Sunday.
