Sadio Berahino has been recalled to Burundi squad for the upcoming international friendly against Tanzania.

Berahino, who captained the East African nation in 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, missed the Sparrow Hawks’ disappointing 3-0 loss to Morocco in November last year.

The 25-year-old has played sixteen matches scoring six goals for Zulte Waregem since joining the Belgian-top flight side in August last year.

Burundi will face Mauritania away in Nouakchott on November 9 in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers before facing the same opponent four days later in Bujumbura.

There is still no place on Olivier Niyungeko’s list for Gael Bigirimana and Laudit Mavugo.

ENPPI striker Fiston Abdoul Razak retains his place in the squad after returning to the team for the 3-0  loss to Morocco after serving two matches suspension.

The Sparrow Hawks loss to Morocco means they still lie at the bottom of Group E of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with zero points.

The Central Africa Republic, who have back-to-back games against Morocco, are the other team in the pool and lost their last game 2-0 against Mauritania.

Burundi travel to Tanzania on 10th October 2020 for the build-up match set to be played at the Benjamin Mpaka National Stadium, Dar es Salaam.
