Burkina Faso face pressure from supporters against South Africa
South Africa will want to get their 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign off to a bright start as they take on Burkina Faso to night at the Stade Du 4 Aout in Ougadougou. Kick-off is at 8pm.
Although both nations will want to reach the world’s prestigious football tournament, Shakes Mashaba’s men will go out to redeem their status after a disastrous Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.
Bafana Bafana have failed to reach the 2017 Afcon tournament in Gabon and this opportunity allows them to restore their pride.
The South Africans are aware that going to Burkina Faso presents challenges, but they will settle for nothing but a win.
