Burkina Faso and Cameroon qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals on Saturday.

Dango Ouattara scored the only goal for the Stallions played against Tunisia at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

On the other hand, an impressive two-nil victory of the Indomitable Lions stopped the Scorpios of Gambia. The goals were scored by Karl Toko Ekambi early in the second half.

Burkina Faso will face either Senegal or Equatorial Guinea (who play each other on Sunday) in the second semifinal on Thursday 3 February.Β 

It will be the Stallion’ third appearance in the semis in the past five AFCONs (technically three in four for them, as they failed to qualify for the 2019 tournament).

Cameroon will now face either Egypt or Morocco (who meet Sunday evening in their quarterfinal clash) in the first semifinal in Yaounde on Wednesday, 2 February.
