The Burkinabe team played extraordinary well throughout the competition, from our very first meeting with them at the start of the tournament where they miraculously scored with only seconds on the clock, to our final match where they vigorously gave us a run for our money several times.
This team will more than certainly go down in history for having come the furthest ever at the AFCON championship for a Burkina Faso national football team.
Although people often say that no one remembers second place, I beg to differ. The likes of Patroipa and Bance will not be forgotten for being firm leaders of the Stallions.
A tournament full of surprises at every turn, from Cape Verde’s first ever qualification to Ethiopia’s first showing in 31 years.
AFCON 2013, thanks for the beautiful moments.
I’ll be live-tweeting the events (and my heavy emotions) for the events happening tonight. As you may or may not know by now, I’m Nigerian therefore I’m #TeamNigeria all the way so if you can’t handle my dedicated allegiance for the Super Eagles, I’ll understand.
I see the game as being 50/50, which is what makes me so terribly nervous. Burkina Faso could just as easily win this as Nigeria. It’s their first time ever at an Africa Cup of Nations, and they’re a physically aggressive team as we’ve seen before (see: Ghana vs BF), so they’re incredibly hungry for a victory.
It’s sure to be an exciting game and I believe if you have Eurosport or ESPN3 (don’t quote me on this) you’ll be able to watch the game live. It begins at 20:00 CAT (that’s 8pm for those who don’t use 24hr clock language) and I’ll be live-tweeting at @dynamicafrica.
May the best team win!
