imagesNigeria reach the final with a convincing 4-1 win over Mali. The Eagles go out
at the semi-final stage for the second tournament running.

The Nigeria players, with an average age of 23.5 years, gather around in a huddle to g over how they cruised past Mali. A very mature performance from Stephen Keshi’s side. They were rarely troubled and only took the foot off the gas in the last quarter of the match.

For Patrice Carteron’s Mali, it’s a third/fourth play-off match on Saturday against either Burkina Faso and Ghana. I’m guessing neither of those teams have Saturday in mind.
