2022 U-20 WAFU Zone B: Flying Eagles Qualify For Semi-Finals After Draw Vs Burkina Faso

2022 U-20 WAFU Zone B: Flying Eagles Qualify For Semi-Finals After Draw Vs Burkina Faso (Updated: 7 months ago)


The Flying Eagles of Nigeria have qualified for the semi-final of the 2022 WAFU Zone B tournament, after a 2-2 draw against Burkina Faso in their second Group B game on Wednesday.

The result means the Flying Eagles are on four points while Ghana and Burkina Faso will have to slug it out for the second qualification ticket on Saturday.

The Flying Eagles will finish as Group B winners if Burkina Faso fail to beat Ghana by more than two goals.

Recall the Ladan Bosso-led side defeated Black Satellites of Ghana 2-0 in their group opener on Sunday.

Ibrahim Muhammad and Ibrahim Yahaya were the scorers for the Nigerian side against Burkina Faso.

In Wednesday’s game, which was played inside Stade Seyni Kountche, Niamey, the Flying Eagles took the lead on 24 minutes through Muhammad whose attempted cross from the right sailed into the top corner.

Burkina Faso fought back to level things up but the Flying Eagles retook the lead thanks to Yahaya who converted a 69th minute penalty.

Once again Burkina Faso equalized to make it 2-2 but the Nigerians held on to secure passage into the last four.

The two teams that qualify for the final of the WAFU Zone B tournament, will secure the two available tickets for the 2023 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Flying Eagles crashed out in the group stage of the 2020 WAFU Zone B held in Benin Republic which Ghana won.
