BURKINA FASO COACH: NIGERIAN STRIKERS DON’T SCARE US
Posted: Feb 10, 2013
Burkina Faso coach, Paul Put is not bothered by the Nigerian strike force ahead of Sunday’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final here.
The Super Eagles have scored 10 goals in five games in the tournament, averaging two goals per match, but Put is not worried that his team will come up against Nigeria.
“We know Nigeria have good strikers but we also played against Ghana who scored many goals before they met us,” Put said on Saturday. “Nigerian strikers are dangerous, just like Zambian strikers and Ghanaian strikers, but we’ve done well against all of them.
“We’ve built a very strong team and we’re very organized. We are focused and we won’t change game plan for Nigeria. We’ll play exactly the same way we have done in the tournament.”
Put also refused to dwell on the likely absence of Emmanuel Emenike, saying his team will be ready for whoever plays or does not play for Nigeria.
