There are just four teams left at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), as we move closer to finding out the Caltex Socceroos' final group-stage opponent at the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 this June.
The semi-finals of the AFCON will be played this week before the final next Monday morning (AEDT).
Ange Postecoglou’s side will face the winner of the AFCON tournament when the Confeds Cup comes around in June.
The semi-final match-ups are:
- Burkina Faso v Egypt (Thurs, Feb 2 @ 6am AEDT)
- Cameroon v Ghana (Fri, Feb 3 @ 6am AEDT)
In the quarter finals played over the weekend, Cameroon booked their spot in the last four following a dramatic 5-4 penalty shootout victory over Senegal, with scores locked at 0-0 after 120 minutes.
Two goals inside the last 10 minutes from Aristide Bance and Prejuce Nakoulma helped Burkina Faso dispose of Tunisia in the other quarter on Sunday morning (AEDT).
This morning, a late penalty from skipper Andrew Ayew helped Ghana clinch a 2-1 win over Congo DR, while Mahmoud Kahraba’s 87th minute goal was enough as Egypt disposed of Morocco 1-0 in the last quarter-final.
