Burkina Faso's 10 men surged to the top of Africa Cup of Nations Group C, with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Ethiopia.

The Stallions took the lead in the first half when striker Alain Traore gathered a clever ball over the top and blasted into the top corner, reports the BBC.

Traore doubled their lead on 74 minutes, driving home at the near post, before Djakaridja Kone made it three.

Playmaker Jonathan Pitroipa sealed the rout, after goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama had earlier been dismissed.
