Afcon heats up

GEVAARLIK: Egypt's stars

Ghana and Egypt will go into the Afcon 2017 semifinals this week as hot favourites.

Seven-time champions Egypt are unbeaten and have not conceded a goal ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Burkina Faso (kickoff 9pm).

The Pharaohs rode their luck to beat Morocco 1-0 in Sunday’s quarterfinal and their reward is to play the only side in the final four who have never been crowned kings of Africa.

Ghana’s Black Stars will have the tougher assignment on Thursday after they knocked out DR Congo in the previous round 2-1.

The Ayew brothers, Jordan and Andre, skipper Asamoah Gyan and company will face a resurgent Cameroon side, who knocked out favourites Senegal on penalties in the quarterfinals.
