The Nigerians had suffered a surprise 3-0 bashing in Kinshasa a couple of weeks ago, meaning they suffered their first defeat of the competition this year, but Salami is adamant they will scale through.

“I’m sure we will pull through,” he said, “I believe we will not just beat them, we will also overturn the 3-0 deficit we suffered in their home ground.

“Here in Nigeria, we know we’ll get a fairer officiating and also the support of our home fans so I am very confident.
