High Stakes for Hosts in AFCON

Burkina Faso know they need to bounce back with a win against hosts Equatorial Guinea in Bata on Wednesday to keep their quarter-final hopes alive at the African Nations Cup after being the only side in Group A to lose their opener.

Defeat in their second game, coupled with just a draw for Gabon against Congo-Brazzaville, and the 2013 finalists will be heading home early.

But Paul Put’s side will fancy their chances against Guinea – their 2-0 defeat to Gabon was by no means one-way traffic as they created numerous chances and probably should have won the game.
