The Elephants tried to find their way back into the game before the break but were unable to do so as they entered the tunnel trailing by a goal.

It was a blistering start to the second half from Ghana who scored their second goal a minute in after the restart when Mumuni headed home a sweeping right-wing cross from Okrah to double the lead.

In the 50th minute it was 3-0 to the Black Stars after a third goal from Mumuni, the Ghanaian captain completing his hat trick with another clinical 10-yard header after latching onto a left-wing cross this time.

Ivory Coast attempted to mount a comeback and even managed a consolation goal in the 76th minute courtesy of a 22-yard free kick from Aboubacar Doumbia, but it was too little too late as they exited the tournament.

Ghana, the 2017 WAFU Cup champions, will now get a chance to defend their crown in the final of the Cup competition on Oct. 13 against Senegal.
