The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will face the Black starlets of Ghana in the final of the 2018 WAFU Zone B U-17 AFCON.

The final will hold on Saturday, September 15 with the winners of the WAFU Zone B representing the zone at the 2019 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) scheduled to hold in Tanzania.

The Eaglets booked their place after Olakunle Olusegun doubled the lead for the Golden Eaglets when he curled a brilliant effort past the Niger goalkeeper in the 58 minute.

The Niger side brought themselves back into contention with a late goal before extra time but was not enough as the Golden Eaglets held on for the win.

The Golden Eaglets will hope to continue their winning ways in the final as their only defeat in the competition is a 3-2 loss to Burkina Faso in the opener.

Ghana finished first in the other group and met Cote’ Ivoire who finished runners-up in Nigeria’s group.
