"We want to win the game for Nigeria and we believe that securing the CHAN ticket will hasten the complete recovery of our head coach," Salami said.
Oliseh is expected to resume duties on November 9, when the Super Eagles camp opens for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Round 2 fixture against Swaziland, as he has been ruled out of the game against Burkina Faso.
