Holders Ghana will meet Benin in the final round of qualifying African Youth Championship after advancing past Namibia on Saturday.
The Black Satellites drew 1-1 in Windhoek to progress to the second round stage of the qualifiers having won the first leg game 4-0 in Accra a fortnight ago.
Ghana thus complete the two-leg clash on a 5-1 aggregate scoreline.
Genoa attacker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom broke his goal duck for Ghana when he scored for the Black Satellites after 15 minutes on his second appearance.
However, the hosts managed to draw level through a penalty just minutes before both sides headed into the break.
The Black Satellites, who won the last continental competition in Rwanda a year ago are aiming for a place in the 2011 finals to be staged by Libya.
Ghana will be away to Benin in the first leg on the weekend of September 24-26. Benin beat Burkina Faso 4-2 in Ouagadougou to reach the second round stage after drawing 0-0 in the first leg.
Seven teams qualify for the finals along with hosts Libya.
