The Nigerians are unbeaten on their road to the final, scoring eight goals in the process. The team defied a sturdy defensive display by Uganda in the semi-finals to book their place in the final. Goals from Judith Adaobi Okah and Chiamaka Okuchukwu gave them 2-0 victory.

 

Speaking ahead of the clash, the team’s coach, Chris Danjuma is relishing a chance to take on the host. “I have told you from the start that it’s a privilege to be here playing teams that have also qualified for the World Cup,” Danjuma told a press conference.

 

“It’s an opportunity for us to begin to test ourselves before going for the World Cup. And that was the reason why I said, just like every team we respect Ghana, so it’s a joy to play any team here and it’s a joy to play Ghana as well,” he added.

 

On the other hand, Ghana overcame pressure from Senegal to advance to the final. Tracy Twum had put the host ahead early in the game, before Ophelia Amponsah doubled their lead. Senegal pulled one back through Kande, but Amponsah bagged a brace to kill off the tie.
