Jonathan Pitroipa was born on 12th April, 1986 at Ouagadougou, a nationality of Burkina Faso. Burkinabé footballer he is a striker-right winger for French club Stade Rennais, whom he joined from Hamburger SV.
Pitroipa played for Planete Champion in his native Burkina Faso until 2004 when he moved to Germany. In 2004, he signed with Bundesliga side SC Freiburg. He scored his first goal for Freiburg in a 3-3 draw with Greuther FÃÂ¼rth on 22 September 2006. He went on to make 75 league appearances, Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga, and scored 16 goals.
Pitroipa made his debut for Burkina Faso in 2006. He was part of the final squads at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola and the 2012 edition in Equatorial Guinea. He scored an injury time goal against Ethiopia in their second 2013 African Cup of Nations game; Burkina Faso beat them 4-0.
The match has tough and both the two teams have been under each other's pressure but Pitroipa came out with one goal to change the atmosphere, although they all did well but I give the 'Man' of the match to him because he really forced in the tournament it hasn't been easy of him scoring.
