Salisu Yusuf, coach of the home-based Super Eagles, says his charges can beat any team in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) holding in Morocco.

The Nigerian team opened their CHAN campaign with a 0-0 draw against Rwanda on Monday night.

During the post-match interview, Yusuf said the result is not a setback, describing it as a wake-up call for his team.

He said the players must take their chances in subsequent games.

“Generally, it is not much of a setback because we created chances and we couldn’t score but I believe with the type of chances we created against Rwanda, we can beat any team anytime in the tournament,” Salisu said.

“The game was a good game and both teams created chances in front of goal but Rwanda was good defensively.

“Though we wanted to win but [sometimes] the pressure gets to you. It was a good game and we will start focusing on the next game.

“We know that Libya have won their first game. They have three points and we have just one but I think football is about the moment.

“So, I think it is not yet concluded and we know that anything can still happen. So, we still remain positive and focused on the rest of the games.”

The CHAN Eagles thrice hit the woodwork during the game against Rwanda.
