By: Lamin Darboe
After drawing against The Gambia on Saturday at the independence stadium, Banjul in their final game of the African cup of nation’s qualifiers, Pualeh Duarte the Burkinabes’ said the Gambian team is a good team and can make it to the African cup of nation next time.
When asked whether he was disappointed with the 1-1 score line after he collected maximum points from The Gambia in Burkina, Duarte said no my system is always the same, I always play 4-3-3 and I also bring in 5 new players who are just new in the team; so having a draw is obviously not a disappointment.
Duarte, who’s Stallions head coach, appeared to be heading to Gabon and Equatorial Guinea for the AFCON finals after securing an impressive 10 points in their qualifiers, said for him there is no small team in African Football, what matters is the ability to deliver the best and Dagano and Burkina Faso have the quality to deliver.
Duarte who also defeated the Scorpions 3-1 in Ouagadougou last September was full of praises for his goal scorer Momodou Dagano, saying he still has more to offer to the team in terms of scoring goals as he always does it for the team , especially when it is needed most.
