Having won the tournament with the now-defunct Sharks as a club handler, Amapakabo says winning it again would make him more reputable

Imama Amapakabo is relishing the prospect of lifting the Wafu Cup of Nations as a coach with Nigeria, saying it ‘is going to look nice on my CV’.

On Sunday, the Super Eagles will play Ghana in the final of the competition at the Cape Coast Stadium and the team’s assistant coach is hoping to double his honours after clinching the same title working at the helms of the now-defunct Sharks.

“Everybody goes into a competition to win. I sat back after our semi-final game and I thought to myself; I said 'wow, this is going to look nice on my CV' because I won Wafu with a club side, Sharks of Port Harcourt and I’m also going to win Wafu with the national team,” Amapakabo told Goal .

“And it is going to seat beautifully on one sentence on my CV.

“I respect that a whole lot and I just can’t for the final to replicate what we did to the Ghanaians.”
