Golden Eaglets media officer Francis Achi has said most Ghanaians are happy that their country’s U-17 team Black Starlets will not face Nigerian team in the semi-finals of the WAFU B tournament.

The Eaglets booked their place in the semi-finals after a convincing 3-0 win against Togo in their final Group B encounter.

The match, which should have been played on Wednesday evening, was postponed to Thursday morning after the venue became water-logged following a heavy downpour.

A brace from Abdulmuiz Adeleke and a solitary strike from Rapha Adams secured the win for the Eaglets.

    I’m a Nigerian and I’m happy we’re not facing Ghana. It’s very dangerous because if we lose that’s the end.

    Ghanaians tv commentators on maxtv preferred to meet Nigeria rather than Bokina-Faso believing they can beat Nigeria as they are not as physical as the Bokina-Faso team.
    I pray for both team to qualify for final so as to settle their scores. But l believe the Ghanaians team is better than ours because of the way they prepared the this tournament.
