After suffering a 5-1 whitewash against Senegal in the opening fixture of the tournament, the Young Scorpions recovered to beat Sierra Leone 2-1 and qualify for the last four. They eliminated the much-fancied Guinea 2-1 in the semifinals before denying Senegal a place in Mauritania with victory over spotkicks.
