Africa Cup 2017 - Burkina Faso - Squad - Coach - Paulo Duarte named his 23-man squad

Africa Cup 2017


Burkina Faso coach Paulo Duarte finally named his final Africa Cup of Nations squad on Friday - well after Wednesday's deadline.

The Confederation of African Football has yet to respond to BBC Sport's inquiry whether Burkina Faso will face a penalty for the late submission.

Defenders Ernest Congo and Issoumaila Lengani were the players cut from the initial 25-man list.

Burkina Faso are in Group A with hosts Gabon, Cameroon and Guinea-Bissau.

They will continue their preparations with a friendly against Mali on Saturday before their first match in the tournament against Cameroon in 14 January, the opening day of the event.

The final will take place on 5 February.
