#AFCON2021 ¡NO HAY PENAL! Herve Koffi salió con todo, se chocó con Kouyaté y el juez dio la pena máxima. Pero tras revisar el VAR, anuló la infracción y el arquero de Burkina Faso tuvo que ser reemplazado.

30 mins: What is Koffi doing?!
Ball floated towards the edge of the box, Koffi has come charging off his line to punch it away and he has clattered into Kouyate.
Painful one for the Senegal man. Will it be checked by VAR?
28 mins: That was nearly the opening goal.
Ciss puts a lovely cross into the box, Dieng gets across his man and heads it at goal – just wide. Not far away at all.
Guira into the book for Burkina Faso after pulling back Dieng. He will miss the final if they get through.
26 mins: Kouyate wins a corner for Senegal. Quality of set-pieces has not been good so far.
Will it improve here? Sarr to swing it in – much better ball, hammered away on the line!
Nobody wins the initial header, drops to Diedhiou and he sends a weak effort back at goal. Well defended.
13 mins: Brilliant from Bande. He nutmegs Koulibaly and gets to the byline, before winning a corner for his side.
Not the best ball in, and Senegal can clear it up the pitch.
