Burkina Faso

Known by the nickname ‘The Stallions’, Burkina Faso will be making their third appearance at the WAFU Nations Cup.

They debuted in 2010 in Nigeria, where they finished second in their group behind Ghana before losing to the hosts in the semifinals, while in 2013 they finished third in their group behind the Black Stars and Benin to suffer an early exit.

This year Burkina Faso will battle Niger in the opening knockout round and look to advance into the group stage alongside the region’s heavyweights.

Listed 47th on FIFA’s official world rankings, the Stallions’ locally-based side was given a tough working over by Ghana in the teams’ two-legged qualifying tie for the 2018 African Nations Championship, and they will be determined to prove themselves in the 2017 edition of the WAFU Nations Cup.
