Dakar, Senegal (PANA) - Hosts Senegal and Guinea on Sunday qualified for the finals of the West Zone A qualifiers for the 2019 Under-17 African Nations Cup (AFCON).

In the semi-final matches played, Senegal hammered Cape Verde 6-0, while Guinea pipped Mali 5-4 on penalties after they tied 2-2 in regulation time.

The final will take place on 18 September.

The West Zone A is entitled to two slots for Tanzania 2019, meaning that Mali which won the continental title in 2017, will qualify
automatically as defending champions.

The outcome means that one of Senegal and Guinea will join Mali as the two qualifiers from the Zone for Tanzania 2019.
