The National U-17 Football team, the Black Starlets are just a game away from winning the Africa U-17 Afcon for the third time after beating tough costumers Niger by seven goals to six on penalties.

Both teams exhibited some brilliant performance on the ball with controlled dribbling and long passes.

Regulation time saw the two teams drawing nil nil.

However it was the Ghanaians who squandered most of the chances that came their way.

Though both teams have qualified to represent Africa in the FIFA U-17 World Cup which will be staged in India later this year, conquering Africa at the junior level is a pride both teams were vying for.

Niger came back into the game during the penalty shoot-out after captain Eric Ayiah failed to take opportunity of Niger missing their third kick.

Striker Emmanuel Toku, qualified the Starlets to the finals when he put the ball at the back of the net.

The Starlets will know their opponent for the finals after the game between Guinea and Mali in the second semi-final which currently is ongoing.
