Salami eye Burkina scalp for Oliseh

25 October 2015, 20:03

Abuja - Home based Super Eagles captain, Gbolahan Salami, is confident they can get a win against their Burkina Faso counterparts when both sides face off today in a CHAN 2014 qualifier in Ouagadougou.

The home -based senior team, Super Eagles B faces Burkina Faso today in a crucial CHAN qualifier second leg in Ouagadougou with the players and coaches promising to get the recuperating head coach, Sunday Oliseh, a 'get well soon' victory over their hosts.

And Salami told thenff.com that the team is even more determined to get a win for Nigeria and Coach Sunday Oliseh.

"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.

Nigeria will secure passage to the next CHAN tournament in Rwanda with a win over the Stallions, and will make only their second appearance at the competition.
The first being last year in South Africa, where they finished third, winning a bronze medal.
