Sofapaka FC defender Mousa Omar is delighted to be part of the team that will be representing Burundi in Africa Cup of the Nations for the first time in history.
Omar has been rewarded with a call up to the team that travels for the tournament in Egypt and he now hopes he can make a mark for his country.
He is keen to ensure the side achieves more in the Cup of Nations as they face Guinea, Madagascar and Nigeria.
“As a player I feel happy to be on the right side of history and be among the players who have taken Burundi to the first ever AFCON. The first part of the job is done now into the second which is actually ensuring we represent Burundi to the best of our ability,” Omar stated.
The defender played in four of the six qualification matches for Burundi, starting in three and coming on as a sub in one. He was in the 18-man squad for all the matches.
