Nigeria and Burkina Faso reach WAFU-B Final

Burkina Faso lined up a final clash with Nigeria when they defeated hosts Ghana 1-0 on Wednesday night at the WAFU B U17 Championship in Cape Coast.

The Baby Stallions clinched their place in Friday's match to face the Golden Eaglets following the latter's 3-1 win over Cote d'Ivoire in the first semi-final match of the day.

The result of the two matches mean both sides have secured their places at the 2023 TotalEnergies U-17 Africa Cup of Nations to be played in Algeria.

But the biggest celebrations of the day belonged to the Burkinabes who celebrated wildly after overcoming the stubborn Black Starlets.
