Burkina Faso’s U17 team has secured a spot in the final of the UFOA B U17 Tournament and a qualification for the 2025 U17 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN). The victory came after a thrilling 2-1 win over Ghana in the semi-finals held at the University Stadium in Legon, Accra, on Saturday.

The match began with Burkina Faso, who finished second in Group B, taking on Ghana, the top team from Group A.

Burkina Faso’s Ashraf Tapsoba opened the scoring in the 20th minute, setting the tone for a competitive encounter.

Ghana quickly responded, equalizing in the 30th minute through Joseph Narbi, bringing the first half to a close at 1-1.

Just three minutes into the second half, Tapsoba struck again, scoring his second goal of the match in the 48th minute.

His decisive performance gave Burkina Faso a 2-1 lead, a scoreline that remained unchanged until the final whistle.

This victory not only advanced Burkina Faso to the final of the UFOA B U17 Tournament but also secured their place in the 2025 U17 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Burkinabè team demonstrated resilience and strategic prowess throughout the match, with Tapsoba’s double proving crucial in overcoming a strong Ghanaian side.

This achievement marks a significant milestone for Burkina Faso’s youth football development, promising a bright future for the nation’s football aspirations.

The final opponent for Burkina Faso will be determined later on Saturday, following the semi-final clash between Nigeria and Ivory Coast, set to kick off at 8 p.m. GMT at the University Stadium in Accra.

This semi-final victory and the ensuing final present an excellent opportunity for Burkina Faso to further showcase their talent and potential on the continental stage, as they aim to clinch the UFOA B U17 Championship title and build momentum ahead of the 2025 U17 Africa Cup of Nations.
