KESHI HAPPY TO FACE BURKINA FASO AGAIN
Posted: Feb 10, 2013
Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi is pleased the team will be facing familiar foes in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final today.
The two West Africa teams played out a 1-1 draw in Nelspruit in their first group game three weeks ago, the Stallions grabbing a late equalizer.
“It’s good that it’s Burkina Faso we’re playing in the final because we’ve played them before and we know them,” Keshi said on Saturday.
“It’s clearly an advantage and we expect a great game. The Burkinabes are strong and play good football, so we won’t be surprised when we meet them again.”
Meanwhile Burkina Faso coach Paul Put believes the team has improved from the first game.
The Belgian said: “We have made progress since that first game, you can’t compare the first game with what will happen tomorrow (Sunday). We expect a tough match tomorrow.”
