“It is true that we are eliminated but we remain in the competition. We have to come out with honor. This is the last game, the players are ready, they know that this is not the time to let go.

“They are convinced that we have to go home with something, it’s a game where we have nothing to lose. It is not necessary that there is an upheaval. We need to win against Burkina Faso, ,”said Song.

He added that he cannot reveal the names of his starting line-up but stated that all the departments will be affected.

“We do not doubt other players who have not played yet but remain competitive. I have planned some changes, but the goal is not to upset everything. It’s true that we lose games but we are not ridiculous. We lose matches by penalty. Already Junior Awono is suspended, so there will be slight changes. “
