ghana waves news


Nigeria defeated Ghana on penalties to win the WAFU U17 tournament in Niger and qualify for the African Championship to be held in Tanzania later this year.

The match ended 1-1 and the Golden Eaglets were masterful in penalties to dispatch the Black Starlets 3-1 on penalties.

The victory means Nigeria win the first WAFU B U17 Championship while Ghana will fail to qualify for the African Championship to be played in Tanzania.

This means Ghana will not be able to play at the Fifa U-17 World Cup next year. 

Nigeria will join Morocco, Cameroon, Uganda, Angola, and Tanzania for the final phase scheduled for Tanzania in 2019.
