WAFU U-17: Ghana Booted Out By Ivory Coast

    The Black Starlets of Ghana have been booted out from the ongoing WAFU U-17 Cup of Nations held in Togo.

    The Starlets suffered a frustrating 3-1 defeat to West African neighbors Côte d’Ivoire to exit the group stage of the competition.

    The Ivorians proved to be a hard nut to crack as they pounced on the Starlets with three goals from Abdramane Konate, Charles Likpa Miezan and Cedric Franck Emmanuel Don only for Ghana to have a consolation goal through John Batigi.

    The result sees Ghana finish third and bottom in the three-team group, behind leaders Cote d’Ivoire and runners up Nigeria who qualify for the semi-finals. The Starlets and Nigeria played out a 1-1 draw in their opening game.

    The tournament champions, first runners-up and second runners-up will in turn qualify for the Africa U17 Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Morocco later this year.
