In recent years, the representative from Burkina Faso has been growing and has reached the final stages of this continental competition. During the 2017 edition, the team reached the semifinals and finished in third place, one of the best placements it achieved in its history. Before, in 2013, he was runner-up.
One of the main stars of Burkina Faso, who thrills the fans with another victory, is Bertrand Traoré, the skillful forward of Aston Villa, who previously passed through Lyon. The 26-year-old footballer scored in the key against Gabon in the round of 16 and will seek to continue his streak.
In the same way, coach Kamou Malo has Edmond Tapsoba as a pillar in defense and Gustavo Sangaré in midfield. The presence of these three athletes is essential for the dream of achieving the first star in the African Cup of Nations to be maintained.
For its part, the Tunisian team did not stand out during the group stage (they only thrashed Mauritania 4-0), but they were able to advance to the round as one of the best third-placed teams. Surprisingly, they improved markedly in the round of 16 and edged out Nigeria by the slightest difference, with a goal from Youssef Msakni.
The efficiency shown by the representative Tunisian, both in defense and attack, is the main weapon to defeat any rival. Coach Mondher Kebaier continues to work in the best way to advance again and continue fighting for the title, which they only won in 2004.
