Angola are set to appear at their first ever FIFA U-17 World Cup, joining Guinea, Nigeria and Cameroon in winning a berth for Brazil 2019 at the CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Tanzania.

A 4-2 win over the hosts on Saturday secured Angola's semi-final place from Group A behind leaders Nigeria, who rounded off their first round with a 1-1 draw against Uganda.

Osvaldo Capemba's brace, accompanied by goals in either half from Telson Tome and David Nzanz, secured their debut berth and a trip to South America.

Meanwhile, in Group B, Guinea become the final African team to book their spot at Brazil 2019 on Sunday after clinching second place in the group behind already-qualified Cameroon, who played out a goalless draw with Senegal.

Guinea secured their passage to the continental semi-finals by beating Morocco thanks to Momo Toure's solitary goal in Mbagala. Brazil 2019 will be Guinea's third successive U-17 World Cup and their sixth in total.

The U-17 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals will be contested on 24 April with the winner set to be crowned in Dar es Salaam on 28 April.
