The Goalkeeper of the Stallions assures that they will give everything to try to pass against Sadio Mané and his team as Burkina Faso and Senegal meet this Wednesday, February 2, in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON 2021).

“The Burkinabe have made an honorable run so far. This afternoon, they will discover against the Senegalese with the stake, a place in the final. This match promises to be complicated, on paper” said the captain Bertrand Traoré.

But nothing scares them more. “We want to do well and we expect a big game. We are aware of what awaits us and we are preparing for it. We’ll see how it goes, “said Hervé Koffi, the goalkeeper of the Stallions.

“Everything is prepared the day before the match. We must avoid talking especially to the referee on the field and avoid unnecessary fouls so as not to be penalised. The absence of Dango who had a red card during the last match will handicap us and will affect us a little. But we have a group and a family and we will know how to manage the game”.

To hope to pass the Senegalese obstacle, honest men must do more than they have done so far in the competition, especially since the Lions of Teranga have only one desire. To raise their first continental trophy.
