We’ve not won yet — Oliseh

Despite beating Burkina Faso 2-0 in a 2016 CHAN qualifier, Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has warned his team are yet to win anything.

Goals by Bature Yaro and Gbolahan Salami in either half handed Nigeria a 2-0 home win on Saturday, but they face a tough rematch in Ouagadougou next weekend.

“We have not won anything yet,” insisted Oliseh after the match in Port Harcourt.

“If we could score two goals here, nothing stops them from scoring the same number of goals in the return leg.

“It will be an interesting second leg.”

He rated Les Etalons highly.

“They are a very good and combative team,” he remarked.

The Burkina Faso coach blamed individual errors for his team’s loss.

The overall winners of this match-up over two legs will advance to the final tournament in Rwanda in January.
