Join us today for live scoring and comments on the semi-final matches of the ongoing WAFU Cup tournament.
Togo and Liberia kick off today's matches at 14:00 (Nigerian time) in a game expected to be explosive as both teams have proven to be in great shape.
Togo edged Ghana over two games to top Group B, while Liberia gave Nigeria a worthy fight that many thought should have ended in a stalemate, before going on to beat Niger 2:1 and qualifying for the semis.
Nigeria scraped through to a 1:0 win in their opening game against Liberia's Lone Stars, but looked in better shape in their second game when they thumped Niger 4:0.
