Tunisia could not stop 10-man Burkina Faso to qualify for semi-finals in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on Saturday, as the latter won 1-0 at Roumde Adjia Stadium.
The only goal of the game was scored by Dango Ouattara before the half-time, who later became the villain after being sent off at the 82nd minutes for committing a ridiculous foul against one of the Tunisia players.
This makes it another historic victory for Burkina Faso in three of the past five Africa Cup of Nations events.
