Burkina faso’s coach Paulo Duarte that his team do well when they take on Guinea Bissau
“We did well in our previous two matches (against Cameroon and Gabon). We have drawn lessons from the two games that will inspire us against Guinea Bissau. We are aware of what we should have done that we didn’t do. What we need against Guinea Bissau is victory since that will be the only way to reach our objective of a place at the next round. (Head Coach, Burkina Faso)
Bertrand Traore (Midfielder, Burkina Faso)
Guinea Bissau is a strong side and very competitive. We know the importance of this match and we will go into it with the full concentration and hopefully win. We respect all opponents. There is neither star nor small player in the Burkina Faso team, we are all equal and there is an excellent ambiance in the team, and that has been the strength of this team. The level of the competition has been very high and it always difficult to score when the level is very competitive. We hope to work hard to achieve our goal of qualification, but that depend of the reality of the matches. We are conscious of our responsibilities and what the fans back home are expecting.
