The players refused to train yesterday, as they prepare to face Burkina Faso in crucial back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The BFA was engaged in talks with the players yesterday, which the mother body's spokesperson, Tumo Mpatane, described as progressive, as the two sides sought a breakthrough in the deadlock.

The players wanted to be paid allowances from previous games, before they could resume preparations for the trip to Oagadougou.

Zebras coach, David Bright is expected to address the issue when he faces the media before the team's departure for Burkina Faso.
