Burkina Faso Beats Tunisia 2- 0 To Reach AFCON Semis

Burkina Faso have reached the last four of AFCON .The Burkinabe set up a second semi-final in four years as substitute Aristide Bance hammered home a controversial free kick in the 80th minute to break the deadlock. Bance's right-foot shot into the bottom corner, from a set-piece awarded after Syam Ben Youssef's handball. They will now meet the winner of Sunday's quarterfinal between Egypt and Morocco in the semifinal, to be played in Libreville on Wednesday.
Bance almost made it 2-0 in Burkina Faso's next attack but hit the post this time, and instead it fell to Prejuce Nakoulma to settle the match in the 84th minute after being left in the clear on the counter-attack.
For Tunisia it was another failure at the quarterfinal stage of the competition. Since lifting the title on home soil in 2004, they have not advanced past the Last 8, losing at this stage on five occasions.
