Burkina hope for the rapid return of Alain Traoré

-

Lorient’s Burkina Faso international Alain Traoré Struggling with injury since the start of the season, Lorient’s Burkina striker Alain Traoré must get back into shape quickly before the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on 19 January 2013.
The former Auxerre player was very active at the start of the season for Lorient, but after scoring a brace against Rennes in the fifth week he suffered a thigh injury at training on 19 September.
The Stallions striker therefore missed the visit by Nice as well as the away game in Evian, before making his return in the eleventh week when they hosted Lyon.
But Traoré suffered another injury on November 2, against Brest, leading to being side-lined for another three weeks.
He was back in action against Brest in the fourteenth week, but a pain in the thigh prevented him from playing last weekend when his team hosted Toulouse.
These recurrent problems are doing little to reassure the technical staff of the Stallions, at just short of a month from kick-off of the big continental rendezvous.
Burkina Faso will play Zambia, Nigeria and Ethiopia in Group C.
