WAFU Women's Cup: Ghana 0 Nigeria 0 (2-4 pens): Super Falcons win to mark the final date with Ivory Coast

Thomas Dennerby's team will now face the hosts in the final of the competition, after defeating the champions on penalties.
Nigeria defeated Ghana 4-2 on penalties to reach the WAFU Women's Cup final in 2019 after a 0-0 draw on Thursday.

Mercy Tago made a nice rush in when Mukarama Abdulai broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 1 - 0 goal,
 but Evelyn Nwabouku made an excellent save, tipping the awkwardly curled shot past the post.

With Ghana failing to capitalize on their initial chances in the first 15 minutes, Nigeria came to life and almost got an
 opening through Rafait Sule in the 33rd minute.

It took penalty kicks to separate the two teams as the Super Falcons avenged a defeat in the semi final of the last edition for Black Queens.
For Ghana, it was a disappointment as they failed to defend the title they won last year.

Earlier, Ange Koko N'Guessan and Mariam Diakite scored Ivory Coast's 2-1 victory over Mali in the semi-final to reach the final.

On Saturday, Ghana will face Mali in the third-place final before hosts Cote d'Ivoire fight for Nigeria for the title.
