3. Ghana lucky to take lead
The second semi-final between Ghana and Burkina Faso started in a controversial manner as referee Slim Jeddi began a night of mishaps with a poor penalty decision against the Stallions. Muburak Wakaso stepped up to put Ghana into a controversial lead with yet another goal from the spot. Burkina Faso had the tough task of breaking down a resolute Ghanain defence as the match entered its second period with the Black Stars in the lead.
