Golden Eaglets Set Up All African Final

Defending champions, Nigeria, have reached their second consecutive final thanks to a 4-2 victory against Mexico in Concepcion, Chile.
Mexico opened the scoring through Kevin Magana, with stunning efforts from Kelechi Nwakali and Orji Okwonkwo seeing the African side ahead before halftime. Diego Cortes’s remarkable solo effort levelled matters in the second half, before Osinachi Ebere and Victor Osimhen’s late record-equalling penalty saw the Golden Eaglets set up an all-African final against Mali.

Nigeria head to Vina Del Mar on Sunday for an all-African final against continental champions Mali while Mexico will face off against Belgium in the match for third place earlier the same day.
