Previous News on Nigeria vs Burkina Faso

Even though they secured a ticket to the Africa U17 Cup of Nations, which will be held in Algeria next year, Head Coach Nduka Ugbade has informed his Nigeria U17 players that they still have challenges to overcome.

We are facing Burkina Faso in the competition’s championship game, a team that has won all four of its games so far. We’ve won all three of our games thus far, but in order to win the trophy, we still have one more game to play. We must prevent Burkina Faso from playing five games and winning each one. In order to remain the only unbeaten team in the competition, we must work assiduously to win all four of our games here, Ugbade informed the Golden Eaglets on Wednesday during a training session in Cape Coast.

Ugbade and the Eaglets have received high praise so far at the WAFU B U17 Championship after scoring 10 goals and only giving up four in three games. Left back Emmanuel Michael won Man-of-the-Match honors in all three contests.

Burkina Faso was in the four-team Group with Niger Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, and Benin Republic, whereas Nigeria triumphed in the three-team Group A that also included the hosts Ghana and Togo. The Young Etalons won them all, and on Tuesday, they defeated Ghana, the defending world champions, 1-0 in the second semifinal to advance to a potentially combustible Final against the Golden Eaglets.
