The Ivorians managed to seal their place in the last four after already eliminated Niger shocked Benin by beating them 3-1 in the other match played simultaneously in Elmina.
Ahead of Saturday’s matches in the Ghanaian coastal city, only Niger were knocked out after losing their opening two matches, leaving the remaining three teams in the group a chance to advance to the semi-finals.

The result means Burkina Faso finish top of Group B with the Ivorians sealing second place while Niger and Benin are eliminated after finishing third and fourth in the group respectively.
With Nigeria finishing top of Group A, they will face Ivory Coast in the first semi-final on Tuesday before Group B winners Burkina Faso take on Ghana later in the evening.
