CAF U17 Championship highlights

27 February 2015, 19:05

Niamey - The 11th Caf Africa U17 Championships will come to a climax on Sunday when Mali's Aiglonets meet South Africa's Amajimbos at the Stade Seyni Kountche in Niamey, Niger Republic, SuperSport reports.

After 14 matches, 39 goals and some scintillating football on display, Africa will get the chance to crown the new African champions at Under-17 level after Ivory Coast, who won the last edition in Morocco in 2013, were eliminated after the group stages.

Mali and South Africa had to navigate through from Group B where Mali came out tops and South Africa qualified as the second placed team in the group. The two teams, having dispatched Group A rivals Nigeria and Guinea, will meet again on Sunday.

The Aignolets drew 2-2 with the Amajimbos on match day 2 of the group stages in a very interesting encounter. Mali led 2-0 with goals from Sidiki Maiga and Boubacar Traore but the Amajimbos staged a comeback scoring through Katlego Mohamme and Luvuyo Mkatshana to level up.

Both teams are arguably the pick of the crop in this year's edition as they have shown they are worthy finalists in what should be an interesting final game on Sunday.
