Eagles Coach Confident They’ll Beat Burkina Faso

17 October 2015, 07:47

Lagos - The Super Eagles are fully prepared for their CHAN qualifier against the Stallions of Burkina Faso, assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf says. 

The home based Super Eagles face Burkina Faso in a first leg tie today in Port Harcourt and Salisu says they have prepared well and hard enough.

“We have prepared hard, and we know victory will be ours. We take this match very serious because it is the final qualifying round, and we will have no excuse for Nigerians if we fail," he tells the media in a pre-match press conference.

“We shall work hard to win handsomely, but we must score the first goal, before we score the other goals. That means we must approach the match with a level head and play normally.”
The pre-match press conference at the team hotel was also attended by assistant coach Jean Francois Loscuito, as well as Eagles’ skipper Gbolahan Salami and goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

The former Enyimba FC, Kano Pillars and El-Kanemi Warriors chief tactician was one of 18 coaches who attended a capacity –building program initiated by the NFF in the United Kingdom in March this year, and he also attended a ProZone software special training also in the UK the following month.

“We have been studying previous matches of the Burkina Faso team. They are certainly a good side but we have an idea of the best way to approach the game,” he said.
