Nigeria's U17 side, the Golden Eaglets lead Ivory Coast by 3-1 in the semis of the WAFU B Championship at the Cape Coast Stadium in Ghana.

Emmanuel Michael's superb brace ensured that the Eaglets fight from a goal down to secure a 2-1 lead against their West African counterparts before the halftime break.

The young Ivorians took an early lead from the penalty spot but two stunning freekicks from Emmanuel Michael turned the tie on its head before Abdullahi Idris added a third in the 61st minute to give the Eaglets a two-goal buffer.
