Burkina Faso’s head coach Brahima Traore has said his team will have to prepare very well to beat Nigeria and earn a World Cup ticket.

Burkina Faso progressed into the quarter-finals of the 2023 U-17 AFCON after a 2-1 comeback win against defending champions Cameroon on Sunday.

The Burkinabes trailed 1-0 against Cameroon after 61 minutes, but scored two goals within two minutes in the final quarter of an hour to earn an automatic slot in the last eight.

In his post-match press conference, Traore lauded his side’s resilience while reiterating their objectives in this year’s U-17 AFCON.
