Jonathan Pitroipa is the striker from Burkina Faso who knocked Togo to the 105th minutes on Sunday evening of a historic quarter-final, Afcon.
– “It is true that we have the humility as Burkinabe, but we, as players, we always knew we could do better. The African public is not easy when there is no victory, it bumps into you. Morally, if you’re not strong, you crack. But we want to defend the colors because when there are victories, we are loved and the party in the country is extraordinary.
– I wanted to play the semi-final, as the whole group, so there is nothing left to Togo. The fact that I score at the 105th minute, I was very happy for my family.
– “I do not see myself as a true striker” killer “I’m a player who likes to have the ball. I’m not always positioned to score, but I always try to make my team win, that’s my goal. “
