Global youth football powers Nigeria and Ghana will have to battle it out for the bronze medals of the ongoing WAFU B U17 Championship in Accra, Ghana.

Given their pedigree at this level, both nations should have been preparing to test their strength and savvy to determine who deserves the trophy in the final match of the competition.

However, the Eaglets were defeated by Cote d’Ivoire’s Baby Elephants, while the Starlets were defeated by the Baby Etalons of Burkina Faso in the semi-finals.

With the West African Football Union still unable to provide clarity on the number of teams that will proceed to the 2025 Africa U17 Cup of Nations from WAFU B, the General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, has charged the Eaglets to go all out and approach the third-place encounter as if it were the final match.

“We are still awaiting clarity on the number of teams that will qualify for the U17 AFCON from this tournament.

``Some people have said only three teams; some have said four teams. It is therefore important that our boys go out there and play their hearts out to finish in third place.

“The Black Starlets will not be an easy opponent. They are the home side and will bank on the support of the fans. But our boys have what it takes to achieve victory.”

The third-place match will kick off at 3 pm Ghana time (4 pm Nigeria time) at the University of Accra Stadium, ahead of the final match between Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire, which commences at 6 pm Ghana time (7 pm Nigeria time).
