Lassina Traore, who has returned to the Burkina Faso national team for the doubleheader against Togo after missing nearly a year and five months due to injury, is glad to be back with the team and is hoping to rebound.
“I’m overjoyed to be back on the squad. I’m here to add a positive, human, and athletic aspect as a member of a group. The group is moving in the correct direction. The team was already performing effectively without me. It produced a strong CAN in Cameroon and is succeeding in its AFCON 2023 qualifying matches, but I want to add something else “the player remarked.
Lassina Traore is still optimistic about the upcoming match on Friday, March 24, 2023 in Morocco at the large stadium in Marrakech for the third day of the AFCON 2023 qualifying matches, and he expects to score to earn his return to the team.
“I have faith. In order to win this first game, we shall play well. It’s been a long since I scored for the national team, so why not? In an effort to secure the three points and strive to qualify, I want to give all.
The Stallions of Burkina Faso will meet the Sparrowhawks of Togo at Lome, at the Kégué stadium, starting at 19 GMT, four days after the first leg was played in Morocco.
