Nigeria's Golden Eaglets will face Guinea in the semi-finals of the ongoing African U-17 championship on Wednesday at the National Stadium in Dar es Salam, Tanzania.

Manu Garba's boys booked a place in the semis of the competition as well as a slot at the World Championship after coming tops in Group A.

Nigeria finished first in the group with wins over hosts, Tanzania and Angola, before playing a 1-1 draw against Uganda in their final group game.

Their next opponent, Guinea, secured a place in the last four after beating Morocco U-17 team 1-0 on Sunday in their final group game to finish second behind Cameroon.
