Nigeria came back from three goals down to beat Morocco 4-3 after extra-time, whilst Zimbabwe stunned Mali with a 2-1 win.

Nigeria found themselves 3-0 down against Morocco before half-time. Mohsine Moutaouali scored either side of a strike from Iajour Mouhssine in the space of seven minutes to give the Moroccans a commanding lead.

But Ugonna Uzochukwu and Rabiu Ali scored after the break for Nigeria and Ejike Uzoenyi levelled on 90 minutes.

Aliyu Ibrahim was Nigeria's hero, scoring the winner with nine minutes of extra-time left.

In Saturday's late match, Zimbabwe trounced favourites Mali to win 2-1 and book their place in the last four.
