Black Starlets play Ivory Coast in must-win clash against Ivory Coast.

Ghana’s U17 need a miracle to qualify to the semi-final of African Junior Championships in Saturday’s final Group B matches.

The Black Starlets must beat leaders Ivory Coast in Casablanca and hope Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets see off Congo or vice-versa in Marrekech.

But the Baby Elephants-who shocked Nigeria with a late 1-0 win-will be a daunting task for the Paa Kwesi Fabin’s side.

For Ivory Coast, a draw will see them through to the next stage of the competition and qualification to the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup.

The Starlets are likely to ring changes again after Fabin introduced four new players in his second match against Congo.

Ghana are at the foot of the table with one point from two matches.

The Group B winner will play their next match in Marrakech against Tunisia while the second placed side will play in Casablanca against Morocco.
