AFCON 2021 - Burkina Faso: Bertrand Traoré talks about "generous penalties''

 

Burkina Faso lost 2-1 to Cameroon in the opening match of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. The match left a bitter taste in the mouth for the Stallions, who were ahead on the scoreboard before conceding two penalties. It took the intervention of VAR to confirm them, although they seemed obvious at real speed. Burkinabe captain Bertrand Traore had a different take on the game afterwards. "We knew it was going to be difficult. Playing Cameroon at home... We knew it was going to be difficult, playing Cameroon at home... When you play the host country, and with the President of the Republic in the stadium, you have to expect everything," said the Burkina Faso attacker after the final whistle, before continuing: "The penalties are generous.'' This has reignited the controversy, as the Burkina Faso camp feels it has been wronged since its arrival on Cameroonian soil, particularly before the Covid test affair.
