Guwahati, Oct 21 (IANS) Mali won the battle of west African giants, beating Ghana 2-1 in a brusing quarter-final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup here on Saturday.

Hadji Drame (15th minute) and Djemoussa Traore (61st) struck once in each half for Mali while Kudus Mohammed (70th) replied for Ghana through a penalty.

It was a replay of the CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations final in Gabon earlier this year where Mali defeated Ghana 1-0 to win the continental title.

Mali maintained their dominance over their fancied rivals in a fast paced, physical encounter in pouring rain at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium.
