AFCON 2021 reaches it’s Semi-finals stage……

The semi-final fixtures for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) have been confirmed.

The Africa Cup of Nations is nearing a conclusion as just four teams remain in the competition.

Plenty of big names have already been knocked out, but there are two heavyweight semi-finals to look forward as the sides look to book their place in the final.

Hosts Cameroon have been impressive all tournament and they made it through to the last four with a comfortable 2-0 win over Gambia.

They will face Egypt, who have had to battle hard to knock out Ivory Coast and then Morocco in the knockout stages, but in Mohamed Salah have a player who can settle tight matches with a moment of magic.

The other semi-final is between two sides who have never lifted the AFCON trophy.

Burkina Faso were second in 2013 and third in 2017, and will be looking to go even better this year, having edged past Tunisia in the quarter-finals.

Their opponents will be Senegal, who put in their best display of the tournament to beat Equatorial Guinea and look to be peaking at just the right time.
