The second semi-final match’s result means both Burkina Faso and the Golden Eaglets will be at next year’s Under-17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Algeria.

In the first semi-final decided earlier on Tuesday, the Golden Eaglets came from a goal down to beat Côte d’Ivoire 3-1.

Yan Diomandi had given the Baby Elephants the lead just two minutes into the game from the penalty kick spot.

But two well-taken free-kicks by Emmanuel Michael saw the Golden Eaglets go into the break 2-1 ahead.

Cote d’Ivoire were pegged further back on the hour mark when Abdullahi found the net with a glancing header to settle the contest.
