Egypt Defeat Burkina Faso By 4-3 On Penalties To Reach AFCON Final

  • Egypt reached the Africa Cup of Nations final after beating Burkina Faso 4-3 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw.

The 44-year-old twice guessed correctly, denying first opposite number Kouakou Koffi, and then Bertrand Traore – up to that point, two of Burkina Faso’s best players. It was harsh on Burkina Faso, and in particular their young keeper, who was born in the same year that El-Hadary made his international debut, and had already saved from Adallah Said at the start of the shoot-out. But it was enough to get the Pharaohs through.

In normal time Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Egypt when he curled a superb shot into the top left corner.

Burkina Faso became the first side to score against Egypt this tournament when Aristide Bance chested down Charles Kabore's cross and volleyed in.
