"The performance today showed who Burkina are -- we have quality in the team.
"We were missing some key players so I am very proud of what we did. I was confident of getting a point against Nigeria.
"This was a very good result for us and I am looking forward to the second game against Ethiopia."
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi, who won the competition as a player in 1994, insists the disappointing of failing to close out the game will not affect his players.
He told reporters: "I am not going to let anything bring us down. I'm very proud of the boys, who did everything I wanted of them.
"This game is gone and the next game against Zambia is very, very important. I'll pick up the players and motivate them."
