The Sogakope based outfit returned to the podium for the first time in three years after losing the 2015 edition to host Red Bulls Salzburg in painful 4-3 penalty heartbreak.
The WAFA U16 side earned a 4-1 penalty shootout win over Benfica in the semi finals and are set to square off against Red Bull Brasil in the grand finale of the global championship in Saturday’s final after a 1-1 thriller that saw Godwin Agbevor on target for the Ghanaians.
Red Bull Brasil tamed German giants FC Bayern Munich 2-0 to book their final berth against the West African over achievers.
Saturday’s final is a repeat of the 2015 semi final where WAFA SC emerged 6-5 winners from the shootouts en route to the finals.
