The 2013 AFCON runners up staged two friendlies in the UAE. The team played a goalless draw with fellow AFCON bound side, Mauritania in Abu Dhabi and trashed Group C based Central African outfit, Gabon, 3 nil on Sunday December 2, 2022.
Burkina Faso which will compete in Group A of the forthcoming AFCON alongside host Cameroon, the Walia Ibex of Ethiopia and the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, will be in their first appearance in the final phase of the tournament since their third place finish in Gabon in 2017. The team missed out of the festival in Egypt in 2019.
The outfit managed by fellow Burkinabe, Kamou Malo, will match up with Cameroon in the tournament opener on January 9, 2022 at the Yaounde Olembe Stadium.
