New champions to be crowned as line up complete for TotalEnergies U17 AFCON quarter-finals

The quarter-final line up for the TotalEnergies U17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is complete after the completion of the group phase on Sunday and a new champion will be crowned after holders Cameroon crashed out at the group phase

THE Indomitable Cubs finished bottom of Group C with no point, and were slightly edged off the second best placed number three team by South Africa on the account of goals scored.

Focus now shifts to the last eight and what makes the quarter final duels more exciting is the fact that winners will be assured of earning a ticket to this year’s FIFA World Cup.

The biggest fixture in the last eight will be in Constantine on Wednesday, when hosts Algeria take on Morocco in what is anticipated to be a closely contested North African derby.

Algeria finished second in Group A while Morocco topped Group B, which was based in Constantine.

The first of the four quarter final fixtures will however be at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Algiers, where Senegal who topped Group A with a 100 per cent record will take on South Africa who were one of the best two third placed teams.

On Thursday, Annaba will play host to the third quarter final where two-time champions Mali continue their hunt for a third title, when they take on Congo, the other of the best two third placed teams.

Mali had a perfect record in Group C where they topped with a maximum two wins.

In Algiers, the last quarter final duel features Group B runners up Nigeria against their fellow second placed finishers from Group C, Burkina Faso.
