Ghana into quarterfinals of African Cup
LUANDA: World Cup qualifiers Ghana beat Burkina Faso 1-0 to advance to the African Nations Cup quarterfinals.
Andre Ayew''s header in the 30th minute was enough to set up a match against Angola in the knockout round.
Ghana finished with three points from two games, one behind Ivory Coast. Burkina Faso finished with one point. The fourth team in the group, Togo, withdrew from the tournament after an armed attack on the team bus killed two members of their delegation.
Ghana, four-time tournament winners, will play Angola on Sunday in Luanda.
Ivory Coast will stay in Cabinda for their quarterfinal against fellow World Cup qualifiers Algeria.
Burkina Faso, needing just a draw to advance, were dealt a blow in the 65th minute when Hamadou Tall was sent off for elbowing Asamoah Gyan.
