The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria have successfully made it to the semifinal stage of the WAFU B Tourney holding in Lome, Togo.
The Fatai Amoo team were on the brink of elimination after losing their opening game 1-0 to Cote d’Ivoire and held to a 1-1 draw in their second group game against Ghana.
But the one point earned eventually became enough after Ghana lost 3-1 in their clash with Cote d’Ivoire on Tuesday to hand the Eaglets a superior goal difference.
Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets will now face Group A winners Burkina Faso in the semi-finals while group B toppers Cote d’Ivoire will tackle Niger Republic.
Both semi-final ties will take place on Friday 15 January, with the winners playing in the final billed for Sunday.
The two finalists will represent West Africa at the 2021 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), which will be hosted in Morocco.
