They will now have to wait for the result between Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire which will determine if they will qualify for the semi-finals.

A draw for Cote d’Ivoire will end Nigeria’s dream of qualifying for the U-20 AFCON.

In their first game against Cote d’Ivoire the Flying Eagles conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 with their West African counterparts.
