2019 CAF U-17 men's AFCON: Nigeria qualify for semi-final in West Zone B qualifier

Niamey, Niger (PANA) - After losing their first match (3-2 to Burkina Faso), Nigeria on Thursday powered past Cote d'Ivoire, scoring 5 goals and conceded just one in a Group B match in the West Zone B qualifiers for the 2019 CAF Under-17 men's football championship, which will take place in Tanzania.

The victory vaults Nigeria to the semi-final from the group, irrespective of the result of the final group match between Buirkina Faso and Cote d'Ivoire on Sunday. That match will produce the second semi-finalist from that group.

Nigeria went from bottom of the table to the first position on 3 points, with 7 goals scored. Burkina Faso also have 3 points but an inferior number of goals scored.
