Golden Eaglets cruise into WAFU B U17 Semi-Finals, set to face Cote d'Ivoire's Baby Elephants

Nigeria's Golden Eaglets have secured their place in the semi-finals of the ongoing WAFU B U17 Championship in Ghana after a convincing 3-0 victory over Togo's Baby Sparrow Hawks. 
The win has propelled the Eaglets to the top of Group B, setting up a thrilling clash with Cote d'Ivoire's Baby Elephants in the last four. 

The match, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday evening, had to be postponed to Thursday morning due to a waterlogged venue caused by heavy rainfall.

However, the delay did not deter the Eaglets, who put on an impressive display to secure the victory.

Abdulmuiz Adeleke was the standout performer for Nigeria, netting a brace to help his side secure the win. Rapha Adams, who had scored the winning goal against Niger Republic in the previous match, also found the back of the net for the Eaglets.

Captain Simon Cletus played a crucial role in the victory, providing assists for two of Nigeria's goals. His leadership and creativity were instrumental in the Eaglets' success.

Nigeria's Edward Ochigbo was named the Player of the Match for his impressive performance between the sticks.

The victory means the Golden Eaglets have topped Group B, with Burkina Faso finishing second after their 1-0 win over Niger Republic. 

Nigeria will now face Cote d'Ivoire in the second semi-final on Saturday evening (7 pm Nigeria time), while the first semi-final will be between hosts Ghana and Burkina Faso.

The Eaglets will be looking to continue their impressive run and secure a spot in the final, as they aim to add another WAFU B U17 Championship title to their illustrious trophy cabinet.
