In the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations under-17, Ivory Coast dominated Morocco, 2-1 Tuesday in Casablanca.

Bedia (30 ') and Niangbo (38′) made the break before the halftime for the Ivorians. Morocco will reduce the score at the 67 minute through a penalty scored by Sabbar , but not enough to change the course of the meeting.
