Burkina Faso beat Ethiopia 4-0 at AFCON 2013

Posted: 25 January 2013 Time: 22:14

Alain Traore scored twice as 10-man Burkina Faso beat Ethiopia 4-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations encounter at the Mbombela Stadium on Friday night.

Djakaridja Kone and Jonathan Pitroipa scored the other goals as the Stallions took control of Group C, despite the sending off of goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama in the second half.

However, it was Ethiopia who started brightest and they should have scored first when Shemeles Bekele found himself clean through but, despite beating the goalkeeper, his shot only deflected off the upright.

Burkina Faso had a goal disallowed on 21 minutes when Wilfried Sanou buried the ball after the goalie could not hold onto a strong shot, but he was flagged offside.

Thirteen minutes later though, they did score Traore, who ran onto Charles Kabore’s lob pass before firing past the goalie.

However, the Stallions suffered a major setback on the hour-mark when Soulama handled the ball outside the box and was rightfully sent off.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Burkina Faso scored next on 74 minutes when Traore fired in a 30-yard rocket which left the goalie with no chance.

Kone added a third with 10 minutes to go – Traore the architect this time – before Pitroipa put the icing on the cake in injury time to secure the Stallions’ first victory at the Nations Cup in 15 years.

Bfaso 4 – Ethiopia 0, the cheating zambians and conspirators of Isa/Caf have thier work cut out for them.Zambia is now going home!!!!…Ethiopia have nothing to fight for again since they cant score 4-0 against Nigeria , Nigeria will thrash Ethiopia silly come next match and i dont see Zambia beating a resurgent Bfaso!!!..the least is a draw!…welcome home my cheating cheatpolopolo!!!!......as for Isa hayatou the criminal and match fixing head of Caf, Nigeria will not pay the $8.4m your son company is requesting from Nigeria to view Afcon.We are viewing it with the help of Dstv, you think you can bill Nigeria $8.4 while billing SA just $2m and the rest of Africa less!!!....you think nigeria is a place you will bring your corrouption attitude.All Nigerians are happy with the decision of BON not to meet your wicked criminal minded demand.Nigeria will surely qualify , if you like bribe the whole caf referees against us!! ....the west african brothers are qualifying from the group!!!

Great stuff from BF, that Triore &Pitiore combo is a gem to watch, many will agree with me that there are no minnows in this AFCON edition..just look @ Group A,B &C the points difference are the same thus meaning most of these teams will know their fate on the final group matches..glad to see almost everyone is of the same opinion regarding Issa Hayatou's presidency, now why do ey keep electing him??

My Prediction is that Zambia wl top dis group wit Burkina faso coming second. These are the two teams that will go through to the quarterfinals. If it does not happen dis way it means it will be Zambia and Nigeria who will go through with 5 points each. Up the Birds

Ethiopian team was great. Their team is build on one guy i think, which is no. 19. After he was injured, the team looses its pace. For inexperienced team like Ethiopia, it destabilizes the team. eish..this guys can play football like barcelona --that is fact.

We can still qualify by beating Nigeria with 4 points, I don't see Zambia beating Burkinafaso so BF tops the group and we'll beat this big mouth Nigerians ..... go Black Lions

I never knew ethiopians behave like pirates they are. Missile throwing, pitch invasion? I urge ethiopians to stop behaving like al shabaab. Please. You are embarassing us! A fluke draw against BB and you thought you are world beaters. Welcome back. To mother earth, al shabaab

These bloody Ethopians are out. They think they own SA. They cant even drive and cause accidents everywhere. Wednesday some Ethopian caused an accident in Jozi jumping a red robot. He tried to run away and was stopped by the by standers. We must chase them away.

Hahahaha my champ! I already have found one my self! I was busy on twitter talking about the game when they were a goal down and out of no where she said I must be nice. Looked at her and just went for her. Offered her some encouragement by telling her its still possible for them to go through as we have to beat Butkina Faso. So I'm working on her! I'm not letting this one go my champ! Never!
