WAFU tourney: Eaglets lose to Ivory Coast

’Tosin Oluwalowo

The Golden Eaglets lost 1-0 to Ivory Coast in their opening Group B match of the West African Football Union B Tournament at the Stade Municipal Lome on Wednesday.

The Fatai Amoo-led side, who were hoping to start the competition on a winning note, were no match for their fellow West Africans, who dominated the match from start to finish.

Konaté Abdramane scored the games’s only goal in the 76th minute to seal the win for the Ivoirians.

The Eaglets face an uphill task to qualify for the semi-final of the competition when they battle Ghana in their last group game on Saturday.

Two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-final of the tournament.

Only the winners of the competition and first runners-up will qualify for the U-17 AFCON in Morocco later in the year.

Nigeria have won the competition twice.
