    Jonathan Pitroipa

    Netted the winner to send Burkina Faso into the semi-final at the end of the first half of extra time. A good performance from the striker.

    Wilfried Sanou

    A menace to the Togo backline, but never really made enough clear-cut opportunities and was rightly substituted in the second half.

    Préjuce Niguimbé Nakoulma

    Replaced Sanou in the second half and his influence galvanised the Burkina Faso frontline. Could've won his side a penalty late on, but the referee waved his protests away.

    Serge Ognadon Akakpo

    Creative threat in the middle of the park, with the Burkina Faso midfield struggling to contain him on numerous occasions. Didn't deserve to be on the losing side.

    Alaixys Romao

    Floyd Ayité

    Linked up well with Adebayor and Gakpe, especially in the second half for the Adebayor's headed effort off the line, before being substituted just after the hour mark.
