Nigeria vs Burkina Faso Preview

Nigeria wanted old rivals Ghana to join them in Sunday’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final. However, the Super Eagles will have to spend a night with surprise finalists Burkina Faso in the last fiesta.

Nigeria and Burkina Faso meet again at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations; this time, not in a group match but in the final.Analysis

In their semi-final encounter against the Black Stars, the Stallions were victims of arguably the worst officiating ever seen at this tournament in South Africa. They had a good penalty call turned down before the referee awarded a dubious one for the Ghanaians to break the deadlock in the first half. 

However, backed by confident coach Paul Put, Burkina Faso fought back impressively. They went on level terms in the 60th minute through Aristide Bance. This strike pushed the game into extra-time where Prejuce Nakoulma had a wrongly disallowed potential winner before Pitroipa got controversially sent off.

Burkina Faso vs Ghana Preview

Monday February 4 2013,
Tags: AFCON 2013, Ghana, Burkina Faso
After ousting Cape Verde and Togo respectively, Ghana and Burkina Faso are one match away from reaching the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final. Which side will break under pressure at this point?

Ghana are favourites to defeat Burkina Faso in the 2013 AFCON semisAnalysis

The Black Stars play as if they have understood and mastered one major guideline: it is not how well you perform that counts but how good you are at finding your way out.

In their quarter-finals, for example, only two of their eight shots were on target; they converted these two strikes to win the match 2-0. Confidence is high in Ghana’s camp thanks to the influence of names like striker Wakaso and goalkeeper Dauda. 

With three clean sheets and eight goals in their four Africa Cup of Nations matches, the Black Stars look free from headaches at the back or upfront. Remarkably, they have done that without the help of the influential Ayew brothers whom coach Kwesi Appiah controversially excluded from the AFCON 2013 squad.

For the first time since their 2010 World Cup fixture against South Korea, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will engage in a major tournament match. They will take on Burkina Faso in their AFCON 2013 opener.

Nigerian fans will not accept a slow start from their team even if it has been almost three years since the Super Eagles last appeared on a big stage. Stephen Keshi’s side are under intense pressure to deliver in South Africa but they possess great momentum. 

The controversial exclusion of playmaker Peter Odemwingie for this tournament will be re-evaluated and judged based on Nigeria’s display. The Super Eagles, who drew blank in their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations warm-up match against debutants Cape Verde, could find it hard to break Burkina Faso’s goal line.

For many, the Chipolopolo’s triumph at the 2012 AFCON was purely a matter of luck. However, coach Herve Renard will be out to prove that his side deserved the cup. Defending the title will not be easy but putting on a good show is a must for the reigning African champions.

The Zambians enter the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa on the wrong foot having failed to score a single goal in January. Three warm-up matches ended in one defeat and two consecutive draws against Angola, Morocco and Norway respectively.

2012 Africa Cup of Nations: Focus on Group B

The 2012 Africa Cup of Nations’ Group B is formed by Ivory Coast, Sudan, Burkina Faso and Angola.

Gervinho will be a player to watch for Ivory Coast.Key match-up

Ivory Coast vs Angola

With Sudan and Burkina Faso not having much to offer, this is the only match-up one can await with impatience. While Ivory Coast have proved that they can be very deadly in attack, Angola can also pride themselves with their unique way of protecting their goal line. It will be Group B’s last game, and with both countries presented with good opportunities to reach the quarter-finals, it is understandable that a draw will surely not do any good to either sides.

Favourites to qualify

Ivory Coast’s strength on paper is just too evident for anyone not to consider them as Group B favourites. With players such as CAF player of the Year Yaya Toure, Chelsea’s Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and Arsenal playmaker Gervinho, the Ivorians will have no excuse available if ever they fail to top their table. Angola’s side is also very powerful defensively, and their sharp attack is anticipated to be the key that will unlock the door to Group B’s second place.

Burkina Faso is the third destination in our preview of the 2012 AFCON’s 16 participating nations.

Burkina Faso ready for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.They are called “The Stallions” (Les Etalons in French) and they are best known for their turbulent past in the history of African football. The players of Burkina Faso’s national team presently work with manager Paulo Duarte under the control of the Fédération Burkinabé de Foot-Ball. The Stallions are among the world’s 100 best nations. They are precisely 62nd in the FIFA rankings.

The Stallions’ history – a blend of disappointments and successes

The first time they played in the Nations Cup was back in 1978. Then called the Upper Volta national team, the Stallions endured a miserable campaign in Ghana. They fell in Group A with the hosts. West African powerhouses Nigeria were also part of this section – leaving absolutely no chance for the Stallions to enjoy their first Cup of Nations competition.

There will actually be a lot to play for when both teams meet.

La Cote d’Ivoire qualified last week after beating Ghana 3-1 in a must win game for the Elephants.

The pressure is now on the Black Stars to get the result that will send them into the last 8 whereas Burkina Faso will try and hold on to their mathematical advantage and eventually upset the Ghanaians.

Will Ghana crash out from the group stages of the Africa Cup of Nations for the second time in their last three attempts?

This will definitely mean disaster for the nation which was the first on the African continent to reach the 2010 World Cup.

In the second game in Group A, Malawi will stay at the Estádio 11 de Novembro to face Algeria on January 11th 2010, at 13:45 GMT. Both sides are very much likely to be influenced by the score line of the Angola vs Mali game which would have taken place a day before.
Malawi will enter this match with a boost of confidence from their recent lucky 0-0 draw against 2010 Africa Cup of Nations favorites Ghana, but it is however probable that their concern will be slightly turned onto their scoring abilities.
