The President of the Burkinabé Football Federation, Sita Sangaré, stated that the invited players, officials and coaching staff encountered difficulties with their visa applications to the United Kingdom.

“On the whole delegation, only 8 players were able to obtain visas. I do not know to date if the match against Nigeria will take place, ” Sita Sangaré stated.

Burkina Faso’s Plan B if the friendly match with Nigeria does not take place is to face South Americans Chile or Thailand in a possible friendly in Europe.
