Bad news for Burkina Faso. The national team will do without the midfielder, Alain Traore for the first match of the team in Afcon 2013.
The injured player has just starting to run and will not be on the pitch against Nigeria in the opening.
Traore confirmed the information with our colleagues of RFI (French international Radio), adding that his package was recommended by doctors.
This is the second player who will miss the first game of the Stallions. Charles Kabore for accumulation of yellow cards will miss the clash against the Super Eagles.
