Golden Eaglets To Face Burkina Faso In Quarter-Final

The Golden Eaglets will face Burkina Faso for a place in the semi-final of the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Nigeria defeated South Africa 2-3 in the last Group B game in the competition to set up Thursday’s quarter-final clash with their fellow West Africans.

On the other hand, the Burkinabes earned their spot in the last eight after beating Cameroon 2-1 on Sunday night.

The game at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Algiers, Algeria will be a rematch of the WAFU-B Championship final held last year. Nigeria beat their counterparts 2-1 to win the title.

But this time, the Burkina Faso coach Brahima Traore said his team are ready to clip the Golden Eaglets’ wings.

“We had two objectives in this tournament; first to get to the semi-finals and then to fight for the title,” Traore told CAFonline. “We will prepare well for Nigeria to enable us get to the semis and earn the World Cup ticket.”
