The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will face Burkina Faso in the quarter-finals of the 2023 U-17 AFCON in Algeria.

The Eaglets’ last eight opponent was confirmed after Burkina Faso came from a goal down to beat defending champions Cameroon 2-1 in their final Group C game on Sunday.

Burkina Faso lost 1-0 to Mali in their first game of the tournament while Cameroon fell 2-0 to the Malians.

Going into Sunday’s game, a draw would have suited both Burkina Faso and Cameroon to go through to the last eight.

While the Burkinabes eventually progressed, Cameroon crashed out no thanks to the defeat.
