Eaglets whip Togo to advance to WAFU B tournament’s semi-finals

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets qualified for the semi-finals of the ongoing WAFU B Under-17 Championship in Cape Coast, Ghana on Tuesday.

This was after a 3-1 defeat of Togo’s Junior Sparrowhawks handed the Nigerian side the six maximum points from two matches in a three-team pool.

Hosts Ghana, who received a 4-2 plastering by five-time world champions Nigeria on the opening day, can now not earn more than three points.

On Tuesday, the Golden Eaglets took off from where they ended against the Ghanaians, also three-time world champions.
