2019 CAF men's U-17 AFCON: Results from group matches in West Zone A qualifiers

Dakar, Senegal (PANA) - Here are results from Groups A and C matches played on Tuesday in the West Zone A qualifiers for the 2019 Under-17 African Nations Cup (AFCON), which will be played in Tanzania next year.

Group A
Guinea-Bissau 2-1 Sierra Leone

Group C
Mauritania 1-2 Cape Verde

In Group B, the third team, Liberia, withdrew from the competition, leaving only Mali and Gambia to contest for the semi-final berth, which was grabbed by the Malians.

Mali await the winners of Group C in the semi-final while Group A winners will face the best group runners up in the other semi-final.

Groups A and C winners will emerge after the last qualifiers are played on Thursday as follows:-

Group A
Sierra Leone vs Senegal at the Stade Al Djigo, Pikine.

Group C
Cape Verde vs Guinea at the Stade Ngalandou Diouf, Rufisque.

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.

If Mali go on to win the zonal qualifier, the losers in the final match will also qualify for Tanzania 2019.
