finale des sélections / match de sélection (Soccer/Football)


English United States
Hi there,

I'm having trouble finding the equivalent in English for these Soccer terms.

Here is the sentence:

Tu vas assister à la finale des sélections d'Afrique de l'Ouest pour le prochain mondial!

Here's my attempt:

You get to attend the West African final trial match for the next world championship!

I looked on the internet, and found "match de sélection" which was translated as "trial". I don't know how to use it though!

The context: the world championship hasn't begun yet, but every country is holding matches (trials?). The winner of those finals gets to participate in the world championship.

Any suggestions for either phrase (finale des sélections and match de sélection)?

Thanks for your help!
