    Daouda Diakité

    Came close to turning away Mubarak's penalty in the first half and did well to deny Atsu with a low drive late in the second.

  • Baky

    Baky

    Solid alongside Koulibaly in the heart of the Burkina Faso defense and ensured Gyan was kept quiet throughout the encounter.

    3.00

    P. Koulibaly

    Had the better of Gyan for much of the encounter, bar two headed opportunities for the Ghana striker which he put wide. Forced a good save from Dauda late on in extra time.

  • M. Panandétiguiri

    3.50

    M. Panandétiguiri

    Harshly penalized for a first half penalty for a supposed foul on Atsu, but other than that a solid defensive performance from the full back, while breaking forward exceptionally well.

  • Mohamed Koffi

    Solid in the middle of the park and kept his teams attacking intent ticking over with a series of fluid passes for the frontline.

  • Jonathan Pitroipa
    5
    0
    3.00

    Jonathan Pitroipa

    Keeping up his consistent displays on the wing for Burkina Faso, was regularly involved throughout the duration of the game. Unlucky to have been sent off late on.

  • Préjuce Niguimbé Nakoulma

    0
    3.00

    Préjuce Niguimbé Nakoulma

    Earned his place in the starting XI following his cameo against Togo was was a real menace to the Ghana backline as the game wore on. Thought he'd won it for Burkina Faso late one, only to see his goal ruled out.

  • Aristide Bancé
    13
    0
    3.50

    Aristide Bancé

    After a quite first half, the powerful frontman came alive in the second and deserved his goal on the hour mark. A continuous physical presence after the interval.

Substitutions

    0
    2.50

    Henri Traoré

    Replaced Koffi in extra time, but never really had enough time to make a significant impact.

  • F. Dauda

    3.00

    F. Dauda

  • John Boye

    2.50

    John Boye

    Was regularly beaten by Pitroipa on the wings and could easily have given away a penalty in the second half of extra time.

  • Harrison Afful
    0
    2
    3.00

    Harrison Afful

    Halted a sure fire goal in extra time after clearing Bance's volley off the line, while breaking forward well to support the Ghanian attack.

  • Badu
    0
    2
    3.00

    Badu

    Impressive in the middle of the park and worked hard on a pitch that would have sapped the energy out of any player.

  • Wakaso

    2.50

    Wakaso

    Put Ghana in front with a well placed penalty, but never really built on from that. Poor from set pieces during the penalty shootout defeat

    2.00

    Mohammed Rabiu

    Never really got going in the middle of the park and twice took a football to the face. Substituted for Boateng early in the second half.

    3
    2.00

    Asamoah Gyan

    Had three excellent chances to win it for Ghana, including hitting the post just minutes before Bance's equalizer, but was often second best to Koulibaly.
