Ghana secured a first-leg advantage over Nigeria in the African Nations Championship following a comfortable 2-0 victory at the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday.
Daniel Barnieh scored the first for Ghana from the penalty spot in the 50th minute as Beninoise referee, Issa Mouhamed, punished the Eagles B for an infringement.
A fine attacking build-up play beat Nigeria’s back line and Seidu Suraj punished the lethargic defence with his rebound after goalkeeper Adeyinka Adewale got a hand to the first effort.
