Ghanaian born Nigerien defender - Kofi Dankwae

Ghanaian born Nigerien defender, Kofi Dankwae has said he is proud of his decision to play for Niger.

The robust defender who won the man of the match award for the Niger-Burkina Faso game said he has not regretted playing for the Menas of Niger.

Speaking during a post-match interview after the WAFU nations Cup game between Niger and Burkina Faso, Dankwae said he had come to prove his worth for the Nigeriens at the expense of Ghana.

The Chairman of the WAFU Media Committee, Mr Albert Commey has admitted that attendance at the Ongoing WAFU tournament has not been at its best.

The patronage has been under expectation with some of the matches been poorly attended. Ghana’s game with the Gambia witnessed number of patrons though the stadium was not filled to capacity.

The Aduana stars CEO in an interview with the media this morning accepted the blame attributing to the low publicity of the tournament.

Hello good afternoon and welcome to the coverage of the Ghana 2017 WAFU Championship clash between the Black Stars of Ghana and The Scorpions of Gambia from the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
