- Mali into Round of 16 after comfortable win
- Jiddou, Traore and N'Diaye with the goals for the Eaglets
- Mali finish second in Group B, New Zealand finish third
Traore was a constant threat down the left for Mali, and five minutes after the break, he doubled the African side’s lead with a fine curling effort into the far corner of the net.
It looked like Mali were on course to a comfortable win, but New Zealand had other ideas on 72 minutes, as substitute Charles Spragg headed home an Elijah cross to halve the deficit.
However, any hopes that the Oceania side had of a comeback ended ten minutes later, as Lassana N'Diaye scored his third goal of the tournament when he knocked home Fode Konate’s searching low cross on the break to seal victory for the Chile 2015 runners-up.
