AFCON 2017: Egypt through to the finals

Mohamed Salah and Aristide Bance scored excellent second-half goals in a match dominated by the Burkinabe before the Pharoahs progressed in the most dramatic fashion possible. They seemed to be heading out when Burkina Faso goalkeeper, Herve Koffi, saved superbly from Abdallah Said with the first action of the shoot-out. But after six flawless kicks from either side, Koffi brought it upon himself to take Burkina Faso’s fourth. His opposite number, Essam El Hadary, saved and repeated the trick when, with Chelsea’s Bertrand Traore needing to score to keep the Stallions in the game, he dove to his left and sent Egypt through.
