Wafu Cup: Abbey banks on momentum in Ghana-Nigeria final

Ghana’s Thomas Abbey believes overcoming Nigeria in the final of the 2017 Wafu Cup will be down to the momentum gathered to face their rivals on Sunday.

The attacker has excelled in his makeshift left-back role in the revived competition for West African football nations which has been underway in the Central region of Ghana over the past few weeks.

Abbey was rested when the Black Stars lost 2-0 to the Super Eagles last Monday in the group stage due to a thigh injury.

But he recovered to play the entire duration in the 2-0 success over Niger in the semi-final last Thursday.

The Ghana Premier League leading scorer is ready to give his all to win at the Cape Coast Stadium.

“It will be a normal game for me. It’s all about how we have gathered momentum to face them,” Abbey is quoted by

“When I was sitting back, I watched them [Nigeria], how they play and I picked a little on how they are [style of play].

“On Sunday if I get the chance to play, I will do my best,” he added.

The Ghana-Nigeria grand finale clash has been scheduled for 1700 GMT at Cape Coast Stadium. It will be preceded by the third place playoff between Benin and Niger at 1400 GMT on Sunday, September 24.
