Ghana Black Starlets will hope to renew perennial rivalry with the Golden Eaglets in the zonal final of the U17 AFCON qualifiers after they beat Cote d’Ivoire in the first semi-final today.

The Starlets, Group A winners, had to fight back from a goal down to win 2-1.

All three goals were scored in the first half.

They therefore await the winners of the second semifinal between Nigeria’s Eaglets and hosts Niger.

The overall winners of Saturday’s final will advance to next year’s tournament proper in Tanzania.
