The tactician is determined to deliver the Africa Cup of Nations trophy to the people as they will be there in the clash against Senegal in the semi-finals.

Kamou Malo

, the

Burkina Faso

coach, has revealed that their identity will not alter when they lock horns with

Senegal

in the

Africa Cup of Nations

’ last four on Wednesday.

The Stallions have had a great run as they made their way through the semi-finals after beating Tunisia 1-0 whereas the Lions of Teranga reserved a place after vanquishing Equatorial Guinea 3-1 in the quarter-finals.

Before the semi-finals, the 59-year-old tactician has assured that his side are determined to keep their rich vein of form.

We have dedicated our qualification to our people who are going through difficult times with terrorism,”

Malo said as quoted by Burkina Faso FA’s social media pages.

“As long as there is life, there is hope.

“We want to give our people a bit of happiness. As long as we can, we will offer the trophy to our people.

“I have a band that lives well and is determined for this game. We are not going to change our identity against Senegal which is a great football team. We will keep our identity against Senegal.“

The coach then said that his goal was already achieved as his side booked a place in the last four.

Personally, I achieved my goal, but as a competitor, I aim to win the trophy next Sunday,”

Malo said as quoted by CafOnline.

“We are determined to go all the way to win the title.

“Against Senegal, a great footballing country, we have to be ourselves. The main thing is to play our usual game.”

Goalkeeper

Herve Koffi

stated that their defenders are capable enough to stop Senegal forwards.

We are satisfied to be at this level of competition because we were not among the favourites at the beginning,”

said Koffi, who features for Belgian club Charleroi.

“It is our journey above all that motivates us and makes us confident. Senegal certainly has great strikers but we also have great defenders. Reality will be on the field anyway.

“When you come to such a competition, you go as far as possible.”

The winner of the clash will face either Cameroon or Egypt in the final on Sunday.
