The African U-17 Championship is taking place in Morocco from 13-27 April 2013. The first two teams to qualify for the semi-finals, and therefore for the FIFA U-17 World Cup UAE 2013, were Morocco and Tunisia. A few days later, Côte d'Ivoire and Nigeria earned the final two spots in the semi-finals and as a result, they booked their tickets to UAE too.
