2023 U-17 AFCON: How We Beat Golden Eaglets — Burkina Faso Coach

Burkina Faso head coach Brahima Traore has praised his players for what he termed as a heroic performance following their 2-1 win against Nigeria.

The Junior Stallions sustained early pressure from the Golden Eaglets before Aboubacar Camara scored in either half to hand them the victory.

He added; “After our first loss against Mali we were under pressure but we managed to calm down and get back on track to win against Cameroon and then Nigeria who are both considered as favorites in this competition.”

Traore added that motivation from back home, where fans are closely following their matches, has become an extra motivation for the players to do well.

Burkina Faso now switch their attention to a tough semi-final against Senegal in Annaba on Sunday.
