WAFU U17 Cup Tournament: Nigeria To Battle B/Faso For Final Ticket

Nigeria reached the semi-finals of the WAFU U17 Cup Tournament ongoing in Lome, Togo on Tuesday evening after Group B pacesetters Cote d’Ivoire hammered the Black Starlets of Ghana 3-1 at the city’s Stade Municipal.

 Five-time world champions Nigeria, who lost by the odd goal to the Ivorians on the opening day of the competition and were forced to a 1-1 draw by the Starlets at the weekend, needed a favour from the Ivorians to progress to the knockout stage. And the Ivorians obliged.

 The Baby Elephants raced into the lead after only nine minutes and consolidated at 2-0 as the match wore on. But the Starlets, themselves two-time champions of the world, pegged back their neighbours to leave Nigeria’s chances on the wire.

 The Eaglets and their Ghanaian counterparts had both scored through penalty kicks on Saturday. It was the time for the Ivorians to benefit, as they netted from six yards with 20 minutes to go to make it a commanding 3-1 win.

 Nigeria will now take on Burkina Faso, another youth football powerhouse, in the semi-finals slated for Friday at Togo’s main stadium, Stade Kegue.

 Hosts Togo were thrown out of the tournament on Sunday after two of their players failed the mandatory MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) tests conducted by the tournament’s medical team.

 With Togo’s results in the tournament annulled, Burkina Faso soared to the top of Group A, and will be battling the Eaglets at the Stade Kegue in the first semi-finals from 5 pm Togo time (6pm Nigeria time) on Friday. Same night, Group B winners Cote d’Ivoire will take on the Niger Republic as from 8 pm Togo time (9 pm Nigeria time).

The winners of the semi finals will battle for the diadem on Wednesday next week at the Stade Kegue, and also qualify for the CAF U17 Cup of Nations billed for 13th -31st March in Morocco

Serie A side Inter Milan are reportedly interested in a January move for Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud, according to The Sun. Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte, who signed Giroud from Arsenal during his time as Chelsea boss, is reportedly keen on signing Giroud as backup to Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan.ADVERTISINGADS BY SUREPLAY Giroud has started just one Premier League match this season, with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard preferring Tammy Abraham to lead the line. The report claims Giroud might be tempted to leave Chelsea in January if he continues to play second fiddle to Abraham. Early this month, Giroud made it clear he won’t be content with being a bench option: “I’m still hungry and have a lot of ambition. “I don’t want to be Chelsea’s second-choice striker, for sure. Just because I’m here as an older brother for young people, it doesn’t mean I’m out on the sidelines.”
