Burkina Faso have released their list of players for the final 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde, slated for Ouagadougou on November 14.
Initially leaders of Group D, the Stallions are now second placed with eight points, two behind Senegal, who have an extra game in hand against South Africa.
Strasbourg central defender Bakary Koné, one of the key players for Burkina Faso, is absent from the list due to suspension, while the likes of Charles Kaboré, Alain and Bertrand Traoré and Préjuce Nakoulma made the cut.
Hassane Bande of Mechelen in Belgian First Division A is making his debut with the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations finalists.
Group D is the only group where all four teams can still qualify.
