  • Soulamana saves Agyemang-Badu's penalty kick to the right to book the Stallions' place in the final with one of the upset results of the tournament.

  • Bance scores for Burkina Faso to put all the pressure on Ghana with their final kick. 3-2

  • Replacement Emmanuel Clottey struck it has hard as he could, and misses. 2-2

  • Dauda dives well to his left to deny Koulibaly. 2-2

  • Afful levels matters again with a cool finish. 2-2

  • Henri Traore doesn't miss from five yards out. 2-1 Burkina Faso

  • Atsu complete a good spot-kick. 1-1

  • Kone makes now mistake with a finish in the left corner. 1-0 Burkina Faso

  • Vorsah with an atrocious penalty take, pulling the ball well wide to the left. 0-0

  • Long ball forward for Bance, who turns and wraps his foot around the ball to fire home on target, only for Asamoah's well-placed boot denying the Stallions at the death to take the match to the dreaded penalty shoot-out.

  • Great opportunity as Atsu whips the ball in from the left for Gyan's header to skim just wide of goal.

  • Drama in the latter stages of this clash as Pitroipa receives a second yellow card for simulation after going down off Boye's tackle. Such a key player for the Stallions and how tragic he'll play no further part in the competition, whether it be in the final or the third-place encounter.

  • Ghana commit players forward on attack, and Burkina Faso look to exploit the gaps. Koulibaly ultimately looks to place the ball and strike it with some power, only for Dauda to push the ball over the top-bar.

  • Bance, again, with the chance to seal things up, but Dadau pads the ball out. Moments later, and Bance fires in again, but a well-placed Afful denies Burkina Faso the lead with a goal-line clearance.

  • The extended game is taking it's toll as Gyan goes down to receive treatment, although another altercation with Koulibaly may have also had something to do with it.

  • Pitroipa sets up Bance with another decent chance inside the box from the right, but once again the towering striker squanders his effort on goal.

  • Atsu still full of running as he tries to breakaway for Ghana from the back as Burkina Faso initially looked dangerous from a left-sided corner-kick.

  • The second half of extra-time is underway!

  • Burkina Faso's excitement at Nakoulma's effort finding the back of the net, but the goal is disallowed with the striker having ruled to have had his boot too high challenge for the ball with Dadau rushing out.
