Black Stars leave Port Elizabeth for Nations Cup semi-final clash with Burkina Faso

The Black Stars of Ghana departed for Nelspruit on Monday morning for their semi-final match against Burkina Faso at the Mbombela Stadium on Wednesday.

Ghana defeated Cape Verde 2-0 to book qualification to the last four of the Nations Cup at the Nelson Mandela Sports Bay in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Burkina Faso set up the last four meeting with the Black Stars after beating Togo 1-0 on Sunday at the Mbombela stadium, the same venue for the semi final clash on Wednesday.

This will be the second time the two West African sides will be meeting at the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals. Their last clash was in 1998 when the Burkinabes hosted the tournament.
