Super Eagles manager, Sunday Oliseh has expressed delight over the team’s performance at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt today. Nassaraw United’s Bature Yaro and Warri Wolves’ Gbolahan Salami fired Nigeria to a 2-0 win against Burkina Faso in the first leg final fixture. 

Speaking to in a post-match interview, Oliseh lauded his men’s efforts but noted that it is not yet a convincing victory for the team.
 “The home Eagles fared very well against their opponents, Les Etalons of Burkina Faso. This is our first match with the home-based Super Eagles and I think it came off quite well. However, I think we have not won anything yet going into the second leg fixture in Ouagadougou, if we could score two goals here nothing stops the Burkinabes scoring same number of goals in the reverse fixture.

“So we will prepare harder with more organised mind to win well and secure the CHAN ticket right there in Ouagadougou for Nigerians. He added that “The Burkinabes were somehow flawless and combustive, I think they gave my charges a strong run for their money. It will be an entertaining and interesting reverse fixture right there in Ouagadougou. ”

The winner of the second round will automatically qualify for the final CHAN tournament in Rwanda in 2016.
