Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji Send Eagles To WAFU Cup Semi Finals

In the last group game of Group A in the ongoing WAFU Cup of Nations Nigeria’s home-based Eagles defeated hosts Ghana 2-0 to qualify for the semi-finals. Goals from Anthony Okpotu and Peter Eneji gave the Eagles their first group win.

Okpotu opened scoring for Nigeria in the 52nd minute after neatly beating his marker inside the box off a brilliant through pass from Eneji before slotting past the Ghana keeper. In the 55th minute, Eneji doubled Nigeria’s lead after slamming in a superb left-foot strike from the edge of the box following a cross from Chima Akas.

With the win, the home-based Eagles finished second in Group A  on five points while Ghana, who have already qualified, finish top on six points.
