Burkina Faso qualified for the CAF African Nations Championship in Kenya next year after beating Ghana 2-1 in their third round, second leg qualifier at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday.

The result combined with their 2-2 draw in the first leg of the qualifier to Ghana in Ouagadougou last weekend means the aggregate score ended 4-3 in Burkina Faso’s favour.

Despite playing away from home, Burkina Faso started like a house on fire and opened the scoring on Sunday in the eighth minute when Sylla Mohammed found the back of the net, 1-0.

Burkina Faso doubled their lead on the half hour when Herman turned the ball home after a well-worked passing move, 2-0

Ghana tried to find their way back into the tie, but were unable to pull a goal back before the break.

The Black Stars continued to push forward in the second half and they did manage to score a consolation goal on the hour mark courtesy of a strike form Felix Addo, 2-1.

Burkina Faso tightened up at the back after conceding and manged to hold on for the victory which sees them qualify for CHAN next year, 4-3 on aggregate.
