Guinea Wins Bronze At U17 Africa Cup Of Nations

Le Syli Cadets of Guinea on Sunday beat Niger  3-1 to clinch the third-place play off at the Total U-17 Africa  Cup of Nations Gabon 2017. A brace by star striker, Djibril Fandje Toure in either half as well as another goal by Eldadj Abdourahamane Bah was enough to clinch the title for them.
The play-off  between the two  semi-final losers, however, started on a conscious note after Niger took the kick off and both sides only laboured to dominate possession throughout the  first stanza with no goal on either side.

Immediately after the restart, goalkeeper  Khaled Ibrahim  came to the rescue of Niger  when he parried away striker Djibril Fandje Toure's flash shot but he was not lucky in the 56th minute, when danger man Toure finally got the opener and his fifth goal of the championship when he sliced ball behind Ibrahim after he breached the defence of the Menas.

Some ten minutes later, Niger's counter attacking tactics paid off as they caught the Guineans napping and Ibrahim Boubacar Marou drove the ball into the net for an equaliser. Guinea went into the lead again through Bah in the 75th minute and few minutes later, Toure got his sixth goal of the championship; and was deservedly voted as the Total Man of the Match Award.
