ACCRA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Ghana's U-17 soccer team, the Black Starlets, was eliminated from the West African Football Union (WAFU) tournament ongoing in Togo Tuesday.

The Black Starlets suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Young Elephants of Cote d'Ivoire to exit in the group stage.

Before the game, the Ghanaian side had secured just a point in their first game against the Flying Eagles of Nigeria and needed just a draw to book a place in the last four.
