U 17 World Cup: Nigeria – Mali Face Off in All African Final

Nigeria and Mali would battle in an all-African final at the Under-17 World Cup in Chile after winning their semi-finals on Thursday.

Reigning champions Nigeria won 4-2 against Mexico, coming back from conceding the opener and then pulling away again after Mexico made it 2-2.

Mali also fought back from a goal down to earn a 3-1 victory over Belgium.

The African sides will go head-to-head for the trophy on Sunday at the Estadio Sausalito in Vina del Mar.

While Nigeria have booked their place in the final for the eighth time in 11 attempts, Mali’s teenagers are the first team at any age group from their country to reach a Fifa final.
