Nigeria has qualified for the final of this year’s West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Cup, after defeating Benin Republic 1-0 on Thursday.

Rabiu Ali scored the only goal of the encounter, as Salisu Yusuf’s men triumphed over the Beninoise, who finished the game with 10 men.

The Super Eagles came in the match, on the back of a 2-0 victory over Ghana in their last group game and scored in the 11th minutes.

Benin’s chances of fighting back, were dealt a massive blow in the 33rd minute, after Koukpo Marcellin was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Nigeria will now meet Ghana in the finals.
