Shock finalists at the CAF Africa Cup of Nations after knocking out Ghana in the last four, Burkina Faso coach Paul Put believes the Stallions can pull off another upset in the weekend's final against Nigeria.
Paul Put has named his 24-man squad for Burkina Faso's upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Congo and Gabon, as well as Saturday's friendly with Benin.
Montpellier took a significant step towards their first ever Ligue 1 title by winning 2-0 at Rennes to restore their three-point lead over PSG with two games to play, while Auxerre sank to the foot of the table.
Montpellier clinched a late 1-0 win over Saint-Etienne to go top of the table in Ligue 1, while Marseille ended a dismal streak of defeats with a 1-1 draw at Nice, and Lille clung on to third place with a 3-0 win over Evian.
