By Adeboye Amosu, who was in Ouagadougou:
IKECHUKWU EZENWA 7/10
The goalkeeper made some crucial saves in the game and was one of the reasons why the Burkinabes were unable to breach the Eagles defence for the entire duration of the match.
KALU ORJI 5/10
The right-back struggled to cope with the pace of the game as the Stallions found joy in attacking from his side of the defence.
AUSTIN OBOROAKPO 8/10
The Abia Warriors centre-back proved his class once again as he marshalled the Eagles defence with dexterity. He was duly picked by the local media as the best Super Eagles player in the game.
JAMIU ALIMI 5/10
Proved to be a good partner for Oboroakpo. He put up a good performance in the first half, but an ankle injury forced him off at half-time.
CHIMA AKAS 7/10
Gave a good account of himself and proved a worthy captain on the day as he consistently thwarted all efforts by the Stallions attackers to pass through him.
PAUL ONOBI 6/10
Started slowly but grew in confidence as the game progressed. He provided support for the centre-backs even though he offered little going forward.
IFEANYI MATHEW 5/10
Mathew never really imposed himself in the middle of the park like he hid in the first leg. He was subdued by the trickery of Burkina Faso No.10, Mohammed Sylla, who was fantastic for the Stallions.
BATURE YARO 6/10
The midfielder was nowhere near his best but still managed to put up an above average showing in the game.
EZEKIEL BASSEY 7/10
The Enyimba winger who was criticised for his below par showing in the first leg put up a fine performance as he was a constant threat to the opposition.
OSAS OKORO 4/10
Struggled to get going in the game and was duly substituted in the second half.
TUNDE ADENIJI 5/10
The Sunshine Stars forward was closely marked by the opposing defenders. He also failed to convert the few chances that came his way.
STEPHEN EZE 6/10
The towering Sunshine Stars centre-back proved a suitable replacement for the injured Jamiu Alimi. Combined well with Oboroakpo to keep the Burkinabes at bay.
GBOLAHAN SALAMI 4/10
Made a couple of good runs into the opposition half, but his introduction did little to ease pressure on the Eagles.
CHISOM CHIKATARA 3/10
Came in for Adeniji in the closing stages of the game. Didn't have enough minutes to impress.
