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.
