Ghana and Nigeria have already met once in this WAFU tournament: the Super Eagles beat the Black Stars 2-0 in the teams' final Group A match on Monday, though it must be noted that the home side had already guaranteed themselves top spot regardless of the result.
A reckless tackle by Stephen Eze on Patrick Razak as he was driving into the Nigerian box earned Ghana another penalty in the 77th minute.
But the humiliation was not over for Nigeria as Winful Cobbinah scored a fourth goal for rampant Ghana three minutes into stoppage time.

Nigeria pulled a consolation goal in added time as Rabiu Ali flawless inched free kick beat Ghana's Joseph Addo at his near post. The resultant penalty was converted by Vincent Atingah for Ghana's second goal on the night and his third in the competition.
Barrister Dalung said he will be in Ghana to motivate Nigeria's players who are mostly drawn from the Nigeria Professional Football league NPFL.
Enyimba yesterday dismissed reports that they were about signing Coach Maxwell Konadu, who just led Ghana to the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations victory over Nigeria. "We lost to a better side and we didn't create chances but it has been a worthwhile event for us as we hope to improve ahead of CHAN 2018".
So while it was the ideal story ending for Ghana's Black Stars B, it was an anti-climax for the Nigerians who were forced to suffer a 1-4 humiliation in yesterday's final watched by a capacity crowd.
