AFCON: Burkina Faso beat Tunisia to book semi-final slot

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos
The Stalions of Burkina Faso on Saturday scored a late brace to beat Tunisia 2-0 to book a semi final slot at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations holding in Gabon.
Substitute Aristide Bance scored with a low drive from a free-kick only five minutes after coming off the bench.
Prejuce Nkoulma made sure of the victory on the counter-attack, after Tunisia had thrown everyone forward, rounding the goalkeeper 40 yards out before the ball into an empty net.
With the victory, the Stallions will face either Morocco or Egypt in the last four on Wednesday.
