The Golden Eaglets, who beat Zambia 3-1 on Saturday, topped Group A with two wins and one draw. Meanwhile, Guinea, despite being beaten by Niger 2-1 in their last match, finished second in the section with one win, one draw and one defeat.
Mali took Group B honours after beating Côte d'Ivoire 1-0 on Sunday in addition to their earlier win against Cameroon and a draw with South Africa. The Amajimbos gladly took second place after seeing off Cameroon 3-1 in their final group game, after their earlier draws with the group winners and Côte d'Ivoire.
"I like to thank the South African Football Association and the technical team for all their hard work. Cameroon came with a plan but we had prepared for them very well."
