Burkina Faso, according to goal.com are warming up for the third round of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations which kicks off in March 2011. The Stallions of Burkina Faso climb to the top of Group F as they enjoyed an emphatic 3-1 win over The Gambia in Ouagadougou in October en route to the African Nations cup finals in 2012.

The Scorpions who began the qualifying campaign with a convincing 3-1 win against Namibia in Banjul face a must-win situation when they travel to Namibia for the second leg of the qualifiers in September 2011.

Should they collect nine points and Burkina Faso and Namibia fail to take advantage of their remaining matches, the Scorpions might earn themselves a place in the African Nations cup finals in Gabon\Equatorial Guinea.

In the weekend of 25, 26 and 27 March 2011, Burkina Faso will host Namibia.

In May 2011, Namibia will host Burkina Faso before hosting The Gambia for the return-leg in September 2011.
