Published

Egypt veteran goalkeeper Essam El Hadary’s save from Bertrand Traore’s spot-kick allowed the Pharoahs to beat Burkina Faso 4-3 on penalties on Wednesday night as they secured a place in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Egypt secured their place in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in a tensed atmosphere as Burkina Faso had to drag the North African side to 1-1 draw after 90 minutes and extra time with Mohammed Salah’s wonderful opener in the 66th minutes, but Burkina Faso responds quickly to cancel out the goal by Aristide Bance,

Egypt Abdallah El-Said was the first casualty of the shootout after missing the chance to put the Egyptian upfront, but 44-year-old veteran El-Hadary kept the Pharaohs up after saving Burkina Faso goalkeeper Herve Koffi’s penalty before he finally denied Traore last chance of the shoot-out.

For Pharoahs, the record seven-time champions of Africa, the win completes a remarkable journey all the way to the final in their first appearance in the tournament after a seven-year absence

They will play either Ghana or Cameroon in Sunday’s final as they set to reclaim their long-lost trophy, they had won three times in a row between 2006-10.
