The Super Eagles team B yesterday qualified for their second Championship of African Nations (CHAN) after they held hosts Burkina Faso to a 0-0 draw in Ouagadougou to advance 2-0 on aggregate.
The first leg in Port Harcourt a week ago ended 2-0 in favour of the home-based Eagles.
Hosts Burkina Faso dominated the return leg game, but just could not translate this dominance into goals as the Eagles struggled to find their bearing and did not create chances.
And so the boast of Burkina Faso coach, Idrissa Traore that his team will cancel out Nigeria’s two goals within 30 minutes of the second leg was therefore just what it was – a boast.
The Eagles starting strike force led by Sunshine Stars striker, Tunde Adeniji, which also had Ezekiel Bassey and Osas Okoro, was again ineffective as was the case in the first leg in Nigeria.
