The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will take on Burkina Faso in the final of the WAFU B U-17 tournament on Friday.
In the second semi-final played on Tuesday Burkina Faso edged hosts Ghana 1-0, courtesy of a second half penalty converted by Ousamane Camara.
After a goalless first half, the deadlock was finally broken in the 64th minute after Burkina Faso were awarded a penalty which Camara converted.
The second semi-final result means both Burkina Faso and the Golden Eaglets will be at next year’s U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Algeria.
In the first semi-final decided earlier on Tuesday, the Golden Eaglets came from 1-0 down to beat Côte d’Ivoire 3-1.
Yan Diomandi had given the Ivorians the lead just two minutes into the game from the penalty spot.
But two well taken free-kicks from Emmanuel Michael saw the Nigerians go into the break 2-1 ahead.
And in the second half Abdullahi Idris headed in a set piece to put his side 3-1 ahead.
