by Waliu Adeyeri
Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets got to the WAFU semi-finals by chance; losing to Ivory Coast and had a draw with Ghana.
Now seems to be the time to know if the most successful U-17 team can reclaim its glory.
Golden Eaglets is scheduled to face Burkina Faso today by 5:00 p.m. (WAT).
Will Burkina Faso qualify to the Final?
Knowing well that a successful win this evening for any of the teams tonight is an automatic ticket to the 2021 U-17 African Cup of Nations.
Burkina Faso last qualified for the competition in 2011 after winning the competition by beating the host country Rwanda at the final stage.
