The preliminary round of Afcon 2015 begins the next weekend. A first round that will know its first leg meetings. Burundi will face Botswana and probably keep an eye on the meeting Central – Guinea Bissau.
To do this, Burundi has unveiled its list of players called to face the Zebras. Note the first two calls of nuggets from the English Premier League. Gael Birigimana who plays for Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion striker, Saido Berahino. These will be the spearhead of a very young and inexperienced team.
The winner of those games at the end of the 2nd round will be inserted in group G alongside Tunisia, Egypt and Senegal.
