Burkina Faso will now face either Egypt or Morocco in the semi-finals on Wednesday. On the other hand, the Tunisian are out of the tournament
The Stallions had to wait till the 80th minute for good old Aristide Bance to score with a fine set piece giving the Tunisian goal keeper Mathlouthi no chance on his left corner.
As and when the Carthage Eagles were pressing for an equalizer, Prejuice Nakoulma over turned free kick by Tunisia to make Burkina Faso 2-0 Tunisia in the 82nd minute. Nakoulma did the spadework by muscling past two Tunisians and Traore turned smartly in a crowded goalmouth to fire just over.
