SAINT JOHN, New Brunswick (AP) _ Michel Bassole scored in the 16th minute and goalkeeper Mamadou Kanigui stopped several shots Sunday, leading the Ivory Coast to a 3-0 quarterfinal victory over Qatar at the under-16 World Cup soccer tournament.

The victory places the Ivory Coast against the Soviet Union in Saint John on Wednesday after the Soviets pushed aside France 3-2.

After Bassole’s goal, Beda Beda put the Ivory Coast up 2-0 just 13 minutes into the second half with a hard shot, the team’s first shot of the game, from just inside the 18-yard box.

Moussa Traore beat the last man back and then the keeper in the 67th minute to close out the scoring.
