Nations Cup: Burkina Faso defeats Ghana in dramatic penalty shoot out -takes on Nigeria in finals

Burkina Faso reached their first Africa Cup of Nations final by beating Ghana on penalties in a dramatic and controversial semi-final in Nelspruit.

Mubarak Wasako put Ghana ahead in normal time with a debatable spot-kick, before Aristide Bance equalised.
Burkina Faso won the penalty shoot-out 3-2 to set up a meeting with Nigeria.
