U-17 AFCON: Golden Eaglets vs Togo shifts  focus

The Golden Eaglets final Group B match against Togo slated for yesterday has been postponed till today (Thursday) as a result of an unplayable pitch caused by heavy rain in Accra, Ghana.

The game will be played from 9am at the Rugby at the University of Ghana.

The match was originally fixed for 5pm Wednesday.

This information was made known by team spokesman Francis Achi.

The other group game between Niger and Burkina Faso has also been postponed on account of the same reason and will also be played tomorrow simultaneously with the Eaglets match.

Heavy rain also caused another Group B match involving Togo and Niger to be postponed by a day.

Burkina Faso lead Group B with four points and a better goals difference than the Eaglets, who also have four points from two matches.

Hosts Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire have already qualified for the semifinals of the competition from Group A.
