Burkina Faso will miss the services of in-form striker Lassina Traore in the upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Djibouti.

The Stallions are set to off with Riverains de la Mer Rouge away on October 8 and October 11 away in Morocco, but Kamou Malo will be without lead striker Lassina Troare who sustained a leg injury.
