WAFA U16 beat Red Bull Brasil 6-5 on penalties to set up a semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund at the 2015 Next Generation tournament.

The teams were tied at 1-1 after regulation time and the winner had to be decided from the spot.

The Academy boys made a superb start to the game, taking control right from the word go and dominating.

The Red Bull Brasil boys had real difficulty trying to handle WAFA?s strike trio.

Aminu Mohammed put them ahead, cleanly converting a penalty after being fouled. Shortly afterwards, Mayron Trista was able to equalise with a superb solo move.

The West African Football Academy also dictated proceedings in the second half, without being able to add another goal.

The Africans then shaded a dramatic penalty shoot-out to become the last team to qualify for the semi-finals.
