On Friday, Gambia will take on South Sudan while Congo Brazzaville will face Tunisia in the final game.

The eventual winners in each of the four quarter final games will automatically qualify for the U20 World Cup to be held in Indonesia in June.

It should be noted that if the Hippos eliminate Nigeria, they will face the eventual winners between Gambia and South Sudan in the semi final.

A total of 31 goals have been scored so far with Senegal’s Pape Diop being the leading scorer with four goals on his name.
