Burkina Faso will always be dangerous when it comes to AFCON matches, have a look why
Burkina Faso is through to the semi-finals after defeating Tunisia by 1-0. It was a game of two halves where Tunisia tried several times to break through the Burkina Faso defense, but failed to get a goal. In the first 15 minutes Burkina Faso had control of the game, but Tunisia came back towards the dying minutes of the first half.
Wahbi Khazri a Tunisian jersey number 10 took a thundering set piece which almost got into the back of the net, but good save by Herve Koffi, Burkina Faso goalkeeper. When the referee was about to blow the half-time whistle, Burkina Faso caught Tunisia on a break attack and Dango Ouattar scored a first goal of the game.
A goal that was scored by Dango Ouattar is the only goal that booked them a spot in the semi-finals. Burkina Faso will now face a national team that wins the quarter-final between Egypt and Morocco. When judging according to yesterday's performance, Burkina Faso needs to pull up the socks because semi-finals will be tougher compared to yesterday's game.
Regardless of Burkina Faso's performance yesterday, but they have set themselves a new record of being in the semi-finals 5th times. The record proves that Burkina Faso is always dangerous in the AFCON matches and poses threat to other nations.
It was the end of the road for the Tunisian side, but they gave all, but football is a game of surprises. Therefore, the best team won yesterday and Burkina Faso still has a chance to prove that was not only a victory against Tunisia but also the best team in the competition. Today games Egypt vs Morocco 17:00pm and Sinegal vs Equitorial Guinea
