The Black Starlets on Thursday departed to Guwahati from their Mumbai base to continue with their preparations towards another all-African clash with Mali in the quarterfinals of the ongoing 2017 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in India.

The two-time Champions would play neighbours Mali, who beat Ghana in the African U-17 Cup of Nations, on Saturday, October 21.

The Starlets beat the Menas of Niger 2-0, with goals from captain Eric Ayiah and Richard Danso to secure set up a crunch quarter-final with Mali.



The United States of America (USA) would take on England, whilst Spain would play Iran, with Germany battling it out with Brazil in other quarterfinal matches.
