The Eaglets showed great tenacity in Tuesday’s semi-final tie at the 15,000 –capacity Cape Coast Stadium as the Coach Nduka Ugbade-led boys had a miserable start; falling to an early goal from the penalty spot. The Ivorians took the lead from the penalty spot in the second minute. Yan Diomande scored from the penalty spot in the very first minute after a foul in the Nigerian box. Aside from a place in the final, at stake is the ticket to the 2023 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations in Algeria and Ugbade has challenged his players to give their best against their fellow West Africans.

Nduka Ugbade’s boys took the lead for the first time in the game two minutes before the break through another free-kick converted by Michael.

Cote d’Ivoire were reduced to 10 men in the 64th minute when Makhete Moustapha N’diaye was sent off for a poor tackle.com. Tuesday’s victory, which is the most important for the Eaglets, comes on the heels of earlier 4-2 and 3-1 wins over Ghana’s Black Starlets 4-2 and Togo’s Young Sparrowhawks respectively. Aside from qualifying for the final and by extension the tournament in Algeria, the Eaglets will be happy to have gotten their pound of flesh off the Ivorians, who defeated them in the final of the same competition in Lome early last year.
