Black Satellites SenegalGhana come up against Mali

Welcome to the LIVE UPDATES of the ongoing Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Niger involving Ghana versus Mali.

This game will decide which team gets to be part of the four African countries that will represent the continent at the U-20 World Cup in Poland.

With one win and a defeat, the Black Satellites are on the cusp of elimination as anything short of a win or a draw in the third Group B match will send them packing.

Qualification for the last four of the Afcon automatically guarantees a place at the Fifa Under-20 World Cup in Poland in three months.

Ghana beat Burkina Faso 2-0 in their opening game before falling by the same score against Senegal.

Mali, on the other hand, lost 2-0 to Senegal on matchday one before handing Burkina Faso a 1-0 defeat to revive their campaign.

In Group A, Nigeria and South Africa have already booked their places in the last four, and for that matter the World Cup.
