Cote d’Ivoire dethroned Nigeria to lift WAFU U-17 Cup

Golden Eaglets of Nigeria were unable to defend the title they won two years ago after 2-3 loss to Baby Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire.

The five-time world champions fought from 3-0 down to score twice but was too late for a surprise comeback.

The Ivorians remained unbeaten throughout the competition winning all the four games.

Nigeria on the other hand won just one in four matches.

Both finalists, Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire have qualified for the 2021 CAF U17 African Nations Cup in Morocco.
