AFCON 2012: Cote d'Ivoire Vs Burkina Faso (2 - 0) On January 26th 2012 by mukina2: 2:36am On Jan 26, 2012
It was a cagey game played under uncertain circumstances the last time these two teams met in Cabinda, Angola at the 2010 tournament. Cote D’Ivoire captain Didier Drogba had famously exclaimed that the Burkina Faso team packed 10 men at the back as their opening group game ended goalless.

This time around, the Elephants have already tasted victory in their first match against Sudan with the Chelsea forward getting the lone goal with a header. The Stallions, on the other hand, lost their opening encounter 2-1 to Angola due in a big part to poor defending.

Paulo Duarte’s men know that another loss in this game will see his team exit the tournament, another first round implosion that will hardly do their country’s image any good after “school boy errors” in their opening game, according to the trainer.

To remain in the competition, the Stallions will need to tighten their defence against the marauding Ivorian attack that consists of highly rated Drogba and Chelsea team-mate Salomon Kalou as well as Arsenal’s Gervinho. The Burkinabe have their work cut out for them having already lost midfielder Abdou Razak Traore due to passport problems.

Though the Elephants might have played below par in their opening game against Sudan, they will surely look to get better as the competition progresses and Francois Zahoui’s men will present a tough challenge for their west African neighbours.

This is going to be a cracker. Meanwhile, Newcastle duo Ba and Cisse are set for early comeback after Senegal crash out of Africa Cup of Nations.
