Golden Eaglets Coach Fatai Amoo says his team deserved to qualify for the 2020 U17 WAFU B semi-final in Lome.

The Golden Eaglets booked a place in the final of the WAFU B tournament in Togo following a hard-fought 1-0 win against Burkina Faso in their semi-final clash at the Stade De Kegue, Lome on Friday.

Fatai Amoo’s side also picked a ticket to the Africa U-17 Cup of Nations in Morocco following the victory against the young Stallions.


The U-17 AFCON will hold later this year in the North African country.

It was the Eaglets first win in the competition following a defeat and draw in their Group B fixtures against Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana.

Michael Emmanuel Papo scored the winning goal 13 minutes from time.

Nigeria will face the winner of the second semi-final match between Niger and Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday.
