We Were 100 Percent In Control Against Stoke - Antonio Conte
Chelsea have won only two times in their last five premier league encounters, and have drawn two and lost one. Both managers, meanwhile, made 14 changes between them following their midweek Carabao Cup exploits.

The tournament's outstanding team corrected the flaws that made them surrender 2-0 to the Super Eagles in the group stage.

The Nigerian clean sheet stretched to 494 minutes before Stephen Sarfo broke the deadlock a minute before half-time in a match watched by Confederation of African Football president Ahmad. "I'll thank the almighty God for bringing us this far and also congratulates our Coach and the playing body as well because without them, there wouldn't have been any team", he said. They were poor in every department of the WAFU Cup final except in the goal area where Ikechukwu Ezenwa did his best to emerge the Best Goal Keeper of the tournament.

The Black Stars dominated the second half as Nigeria collapsed, and any hopes of a Nigeria comeback were ended when Sarfo completed his double from the penalty spot.

"We have seen Nigeria play most of their games in the afternoons, which had been very hard for them because of the scorching sun, now they would play in the evening and that would be a great atmosphere".
