The Burundi national football team (Kirundi: Intamba m'Urugamba), nicknamed The Swallows in the War (French: Les Hirondelles dans la guerre), is the national team of Burundi and is controlled by the Football Federation of Burundi. The team has never qualified for the World Cup. Burundi previously did come very close to qualifying for the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations, losing only on penalties to Guinea in a playoff, however, in 2019, it qualified for the very first time and will take part in the Africa Cup of Nations finals in 2019.
