Guinea Holds Nigeria To Goalless Draw …WAFU Cup

Nigeria thus finished on five points, a point less than already-qualified Ghana.

But the Super Eagles have it all to play for as they now sit second in the group after two successive draws.

In a chat with the Graphic Sports yesterday, Frimpong noted that the team needed to stay grounded, focused and also take their chances in subsequent matches in order to realise their ambition.

"I am sure they know the pride and history that comes with such games, especially that of Ghana, so they will be prepared to up their game, " he said.

He said that the team had to galvanise its attack to be able to convert their chances to goals.

The home based Super Eagles were hoping to pick three points against the Syli Nationale but they had to settle for their second draw in two days in the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.

On Cobinnah's goal, the coach said he was happy for his spectacular goal and that the technical team would continue to encourage him and the rest of the players to move on. It is only the first game.

"But while doing so, we have to also be cautious and patient".

Both sides went in search of the golden fleece but at the end of proceedings it was a case of shared spoils at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Tomorrow's game in cape Coast will kick-off at 7pm Nigerian time, same time the other Group A clash between Mali and Guinea also begins.

Speaking after the match, Konadu said his charges would prepare well for the game against Nigeria, which would be their last group match, adding that, "we are not thinking about the finals but we will take it one match after the other".
