Burkina Faso – A win will do it

The Stallions edged 1-0 past Cape Verde following an opening match 2-1 defeat to hosts Cameroon.

On 3 points, Burkina Faso knows another win means they will go through. A draw might do it, but they would have to wait the result of the simultaneous game between hosts Cameroon and Cape Verde.

Having won their only head-to-head AFCON encounter over Ethiopia 4-0 back in 2013 when they reached the final, Burkina Faso will have istory on their side. But what matters in what happens on the pitch.
