Luanda — The Angolan national senior males football team will play on 14 November in Portugal a friendly match against Burkina Faso, under the last FIFA date of the year.

This was said to Angop on Thursday by the Vice-president of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF) for communication and marketing, João Lusevikueno.

The official explained that "Palancas Negras" will travel to Lisbon on 11 November and the summoning of players will be announced between 6 and 7 this month.

This friendly match is part of the preparation of both teams, ahead of their participation in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON2013), to be hosted by South Africa.

This is the second match between the two squads, after the Angolan "2-1" victory over Burkina Faso in the last competition, co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

Angola is integrated in group A together with South Africa, Morocco and Cape Verde.
