File picture: Golden Eaglets

The Golden Eaglets will on Friday confront  Group A winners Burkina Faso to book a ticket to the U17 AFCON in Morocco in July after they sneaked into the semifinal of the qualifying tournament in Lome, Togo.

Nigeria went through to the last-four on a better goals difference than arch-rivals Ghana to set up a titanic semifinal battle against Burkina Faso on Friday.

The other semifinal will be between Cote d’Ivoire and Niger after hosts Togo were disqualified from the competition after they lined up a player who failed the age test.

The two finalists will automatically advance to the U17 AFCON in Morocco.
