Burkina Faso coach Paulo Duarte slammed Angola’s players for their attitude at the end of their game on Sunday night.

“After the second goal, Angola played anti-football and the referee allowed that. Of course, teams want to win in every way but that was ridiculous. The players kept on falling down to waste most of the time and the referee did nothing,” the Portuguese tactician said after the game.

Manucho scored the winner in the 68th minute to fire the Palancas Negras to the top of Group B with a 2-1 win over Burkina Faso.

“We conceded goals from really naïve defensive mistakes. However, we played a good match despite the injuries and suspensions. Now we have to focus on our next game and try to win or at least get a draw,” he added.

Burkina Faso will play Ivory Coast – who beat Sudan 1-0 in the opening game of the group - next Thursday.
