The 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations got underway over the weekend with the host nation Ghana needing a controversial late penalty to secure their place in the group stage at the expense of minnows Gambia. 

Another powerhouse, Senegal scraped through to the after beating Liberia 5-4 on penalties after a boring goalless draw. 

Niger recorded a stunning 2-1 victory over pre-tournament favourites Burkina Faso to book their place in the group stage in the ongoing WAFU Cup of Nations. 

Having denied Ghana qualification to the 2018 African Nations Championship, Burkina Faso were highly fancied to annex the WAFU trophy, but have instead suffered elimination first round at the hands of a determined Niger. 

Also, Guinea came from behind to defeat Guinea Bissau 2-1.
