Nigeria and Cameroon have qualified for the finals of the
2011 African Youth Championship, AYC slated for Sunday
in Dobsonville stadium in Johannesburg.
In the first semi-final played on Thursday, the Flying Eagles
of Nigeria defeated Mali with 2 goals to nothing.
Uche Nwofor tapped in the first goal of the game in 22
minutes while Stanley Okoro confidently scored from a spot
Kick at the stroke of 90 minutes after Kayode Olarewaju
was hacked down by Malian defender, Diallo.
Both Egypt and Cameroon were clueless and lacked
creativities in their semi final match as the game ended
goalless after regulation and extra time. Cameroon
converted their own spot kicks while Egypt wasted two of
their kicks in a penalty shoot out that ended in controversy.
The assistant referees disallowed two penalty kicks that the
Egyptian keeper saved, when ordered that the kicks be
retaken, the young lions had no problem converting them at
the second chance.
Egypt will now face Mali in loser’s match for the third place.
