CHAN Nigeria v Ghana: Revenge not on our minds  – Salisu Yusuf

Super Eagles B Head Coach, Salisu Yusuf says the mission of the team has nothing to do with avenging the defeat Nigeria suffered at the hands of Ghana on the road to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The coach who took the Eagles B to a silver finish in 2018 in Morocco, said his current team is more concerned about qualifying for Algeria 2023 rather than aiming for ‘revenge.’

“I won’t say we are seeking to get revenge against Ghana because of what happened with the last game on the road to the Qatar World Cup. We want to win and qualify for the final stage of the competition in Algeria next year. That is basically what we are pursuing.

“However, if we beat them to the ticket, which we definitely hope to achieve, then whatever description anyone gives it should be a matter of choice,” the coach said after a session at the training pitch of the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.

The Eagles B have intensified their workouts at the venue on a daily basis and have played two friendly games against youth teams on Thursday as part of their build-up for the matches billed for 28th August in Cape Coast and 3rd September in Abuja.
