Super Eagles striker Gbolahan Salami says him and his teammates are determined to score as many goals against Burkina Faso in the first leg of the 2016 CHAN qualifier this weekend.

The Warri Wolves talisman says the team will go all out for a massive win to make the return leg in Ouagaduogou a mere formality.

“It’s important for us not only to win the game, but score goals as well. They have the advantage of hosting the return leg, so, if we can win well here, then we can make the return a mere formality.

“I know they will come here with strong determination not to lose, but we are determined to qualify for the competition,” Salami quoted as saying.

The match will be played at the Adokiye Amiesiamaka on Sunday, with the return leg a week later. The winners of both ties will qualify automatically for the fourth edition African Nations Championship in Rwanda next year.
