An ex-international midfielder, Waidi Akanni, says the Stallions of Burkina Faso would do everything possible to defeat the Super Eagles in their upcoming international friendly match on March 27.

The former midfielder said this on Friday in Lagos that the Stallions would want to avenge their 2013 South Africa AFCON finals loss to the Super Eagles.

“The fact that we also played them at the last Nations Cup final also mean they will want to come and take revenge.

“So by and large I think they will want to come and play us with their full team thinking you know; it’s time for them to get revenge back on Nigeria.

‘’So, it’s going to be an interesting game.’’

Akanni, who was a member of the Flying Eagles squad that won the bronze medal at the Moscow 1985 FIFA U20 World Cup, added that the match would be a good tune-up for the Eagles.
