Afcon 2017 – Burkina Faso Stun Tunisia To Qualify For Semi Finals

Burkina Faso secured a stunning 2-0 victory over Tunisia in the quarter finals of the ongoing Cup of African Natons tournament in Gabon to book an unexpected but well deserved place in the semis.


Two late goals from substitute Aristide Bance and forward Nakoulma wrapped up the game for the West Africans after a largely listless game with few chances.

The Burkinabes, beaten finalists in 2013, took the game to the 2004 Champions and matched them toe to toe, although neither side really managed to break the other down.

But whilst the game seemed headed for a stalemate, substitute Bance lashed a freekick into the bottom corner to send his team into frenzy.

The game was virtually over as a tie a few minutes later, as Nakoulma scored on the counter after a Tunisian corner was cleared and he ran onto the clearance ahead of the Tunisian goalie.

Burkina move into their second semifinals in three tournaments, awaiting the winner of the Egypt vs Morocco semi final.
