WAFU U-17: Ghana qualify for final after victory over Ivory Coast

Ghana reached the final of the WAFU U17 tournament after beating Ivory Coast 2-1 in Niamey on Wednesday.

The Black Starlets had to rally from behind to behind to score two goals in quick succession late in the first half.

The equalizer was a blistering header through Umar Mohammed before the winner came shortly afterwards by Taufiq Shaibu.

Ten minutes to time, Eugene Adjei Frimpong was sent off for a second yellow card.

Ghana will face the winner of Thursday’s semi-final clash between Nigeria and Niger.
