Mali are through to the semi-finals of the Under-17 World Cup in India after a 2-1 victory over Ghana in Saturday's quarter-final.

Mali scored a goal in each half through Hadji Drame and Djemoussa Traore in the 15th and 61st minute with the second half goal as a result of goalkeeping error on the part of the Ghanaian goalie.

Last edition's runners-up Mali started on an attacking note with Lassana N'diaye finding the ball at his feet in a risky position on two different occasions, but Ghana's defence was equal to the task.

Mali have the ability to score from outside the rival penalty box and the Ghana defenders as well as their goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim will have to be on their toes.

Having struggled to come to terms with the conditions for a major part of the game, Ghana, in search of the equaliser, showed urgency in the last 20 minutes of regulation time.
