Nigeria’s U-20 Draw Burkina Faso 2-2, Advance to WAFU B Semi Finals

Nigeria’s under 20 national team played out a thrilling 2-2 draw against Burkina Faso on Wednesday to seal passage to the semifinals of the 2022 WAFU B championship.

The eagles defeated Ghana 2-0 on Sunday in their opening group B match, and knew a win over the young stallions would see them advance to the tournament’s next phase.

And a win they almost got, thanks to Ibrahim Muhammad’s bizarre 24th-minute goal and Ibrahim Yahaya’s second half spot-kick.

Despite the draw, Nigeria is through to the semifinals and will secure top spot if Ghana avoids a defeat when they meet Burkina Faso in the final group match on Saturday.
