Nigeria’s Super Eagles have qualified for the semi final of the ongoing 2017 West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Cup of Nations after beating Ghana 2-0 on Monday.

The Nigerian team needed a win over the Black Stars in their last Group A game in Cape Coast in order to qualify for the semi-finals, having picked up draws in their first two matches.

Two second-half goals from Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji secured the Nigerian men their first win in the group stage of the tournament.

With the win, the home-based Eagles finished second in Group A, five points behind Ghana, who had already qualified with six points.
