WAFU Cup: Salisu Hails Players Character In Win Over Sierra Leone

By Augustine Akhilomen

Chief coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf has applauded the performance of the team in their 2-0 win over Sierra Leone in the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.

The victory which qualify the team to the group stage of the competition will see them square up against Ghana on Thursday.

“We didn’t have training [except for] one day because we were so much concerned with the World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon.

“It’s the most important. We have qualified for CHAN [African Nations Championship], so we
had to take a risk that all our concentration will be on the World Cup first.

“It was a good decision and it was a good game, because we came here with the same squad that played Benin in the last CHAN qualifier and we played the same system.

“We had some good young players come in, but they cannot play because they never trained. All of them played a league match on Saturday and travelled long distances, so there was no
recovery.
