Burkina Faso head coach Brahima Traore has stressed on the importance of teamwork as his team prepares to take on Nigeria in the quarter- finals of the 2023 Africa U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Algiers on Thursday.

Traore is expecting a difficult duel against the Golden Eaglets and said teamwork will be the crucial ingredient to take them through.

“We go into the match with calmness but the enthusiasm to do well and achieve qualification to the World Cup. But, I have insisted with the players that we have to play together as a team and not individually. We want to achieve collectively as a team,” the tactician said.

They face Nigeria once again, having come up against them in the final of the WAFU Zone B qualification tournament, with Nigeria winning 2-1.

But the coach expects a different match up altogether.

“Both teams have changed and most of the players who played then are not in the team. It will be a different match and definitely tougher,” the coach stated.

He has reiterated that just like any other team in the last eight, they are motivated by the opportunity of qualifying for the World Cup.

“Our first goal is to reach the semi-finals and qualify for the World Cup, and we will do everything in our power to achieve it. Our second goal is to take the trophy to our country and win the title for the second time,” said the coach.
