Put: We Have To Fight

Burkina Faso will be in Soweto tonight where they will fight it out for the Africa Cup of Nations trophy against Nigeria at the National Stadium.

It will be the country’s first appearance in the final of Africa’s most coveted trophy and although they will go into the game as the underdogs, they will be confident that they can go on to claim the title of Africa’s best.

The side’s head coach, Paul Put, believes that they have grown as the tournament has progressed and will go all-out for the win against the more fancied Super Eagles. The two sides faced each other in the group stages, with the game having ended 1-1.

“We learnt something in the first encounter.  We are playing in the final now and the players have done very well to be here. We have to fight as we have done in all the other games. What we need to do is to avoid silly mistakes which could cost us the game and we have also learnt that in our other games where we got red cards. 

“But for tonight, we want to enjoy ourselves and even if we don't win, everyone will be proud of the achievements the team has gone through so far up to this stage," the Belgian-born mentor said.
