The Black Stars B has advanced to the Semi-Final stage after edging Burkina Faso in an entertaining game in front of a raucous Stade Lat Dior.

Goalkeeper Eric Antwi Ofori made two fantastic saves in the penalty shootout, which saw Ghana winning 5-4 fter 1-1 draw in regulation town.

The meeting between two neighbors did not disappoint as the Stade Lat Dior in Thies, got electrified on Friday.

The win comes just two weeks after Burkina Faso beat Ghana in the first leg of their 2020 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) last round qualifier at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Burkina had taken the lead in the first half through Ilias Tiendrebeogo just after four minutes.

The AS SONABEL forward tapped tapping home a pin-point cross from Rahimo FC Mody Cisse.

But Ghana drew level when skipper Shifiu Mumuni headed home from Joseph Esso cross in the the 38th minute.

The second half saw Ghana continue their dominance of the game, but their passing in the final third let them down.
The first decent chance of the half came in the 62nd minute when Okrah found some space on the edge of the box, but he fired his shot inches over the target.

Burkina Faso saw very little of the ball in the second 45 although Tiendrebeogo almost grabbed the winner for them in the 84th minute when a loose ball fell to him just inside the box, but the striker blazed narrowly over the crossbar.
The game ended 1-1 and went to penalties to decide the winner where Ghanaian keeper Ofori saved two spot-kicks to see his side win 5-4 in the shootout.
Ghana will now face the winner of the match between Ivory Coast and Togo in the semifinals of the Cup competition on Oct. 9.
