Match
The Burkinabè did not give the Ghanaians a chance to settle because they increased the number of flank attacks that caused difficulties for their opponents.

These efforts paid off before the quarter hour thanks to Abdoul Ouattara, who seized an excellent opportunity for the Burkinabes. Forced to look for the equalizer, the Ghanaians plunged themselves into the fray and attacked relentlessly with all their might, but the tenacious Stallions survived the strain.

Before the Burkinabe player martyred the Ghanaian goalie, Libo Ismael Seone took advantage of a lack of possession in the middle of the field in the final quarter of an hour.

Burkina Faso advanced to the round of four as a consequence, while Ghana must defeat the Cote d’Ivoire hosts in their final game to have any chance of finishing above their group.

The Cote d’Ivoire U-20 national team, also known as the Baby Elephants, rebounded from their loss to Burkina Faso on the second day of the group stages of the WAFU-B U20 Boys Cup competition by thrashing Niger 4-1.
