The home based Super Eagles of Nigeria on Thursday advanced top the final of the 2017 WAFU  Cup of Nations defeating  Benin 1-0 in Cape Coast in the semi final game.

In the second semi final game, hosts Ghana defeated Niger  2-0 to qualify for  Sunday’s final.

It will be the second meeting between the Super  Eagles and  Black Stars  at the competition after an earlier meeting in the Group stages. Nigeria won the match 2-0.

Kano Pillars midfielder Rabiu Ali scored for Nigeria with only 11 minutes on the clock. Benin  were reduced to 10 after striker Merceline Koupko was sent off following a second yellow card for diving in the 37th minute.

Nigeria had earlier defeated Benin 2-1 over two legs to earn a ticket to the 2018 African Nations Championship only a few weeks ago. After a 1-0 defeat in Cotonou, courtesy of a late penalty kick, goals by Ali and Kingsley Eduwo saw the Eagles nick the ticket to Kenya.

Nigeria goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa had little to do in the game as the Eagles beat the Squirrels. Nigeria have yet to concede a goal in the tournament, stretching their run to five clean sheets.
