Bertrand Traoré (TotalEnergies Man the Match)
“I’m very disappointed after this result. We had the game in our hands. We were leading 3-0 before being caught a few seconds from the end of the game. It’s professional misconduct because we had everything to win the game This result comes to ruin our course”.
Kamou Malo (Burkina Faso coach)
“It’s hard to explain what happened tonight. We were leading 3-0 and then the Cameroonians came back. It’s a rare situation in football. I’m sad. It’s a first CAN for me. I am discovering the big competitions. I have experienced great things but also difficult situations. We have achieved an excellent course”.
Antonio Conceiçao (Cameroon coach)
“48 hours after playing extra time, I couldn’t take any risks with the players and that’s why I reshuffled my team. We saw several players play tonight and I’m satisfied with the performance of several players. We have a first objective which was to play the final but it was decided on details in the semi-final against Egypt. Today we demonstrated the strength of character of this group and we won on penalties”.
