Golden Eaglets await either Cameroun or Burkina Faso for quarter-final clash



Nigeria’s Golden Eaglet will meet the team with a more favourable result in  this evening Group C clash of Burkina Faso and Cameroon.

Both teams are currently without a win having lost to group leader, Mali in a group that is composed of three teams after the expulsion of South Sudan who infringed on age regulations.

Nigeria will face the team that finishes second. At the moment, it is Burkina Faso who have goal different advantage over cameroon.

A drew may see Burkina Faso through to face Nigeria. In the event that a winner emerges, the third place team will be without a point and that will be to the advantage of South Africa who will squeeze through as one of the two best third placed teams.
