RUSSIA 2018 QUALIFIERS: Oliseh has no team yet –Nwosu

Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh would have to dig deeper into his bag for tricks that will see him build a stronger team if his dream of qualifying Nige­ria for the Russia 2018 World Cup is to become a reality.

This much was adduced by former Eagles skipper, Heny Nwosu, MON while reviewing the Nigeria, Swaziland encounter played in Port-Harcourt on Tues­day.

While Nwosu is glad Nige­ria qualified for the final group stage, he maintains that the play­ers performed below expectation. “As a Nigerian, I am glad that we scored goals that gave us a chance to play in the final group stage but I must tell you from the bottom of my heart that our players did not play to the expectations of Nige­rians.

Oliseh still has a big task ahead of him because these boys are yet to get a rhythm of play and that means a lot of work. He should depend less on foreign-based players and look inwards because the players at home are hungrier for action. They would go the ex­tra mile just to prove themselves.”

Speaking on Oliseh’s decision to leave Chelsea defensive mid­fielder Mikel Obi and Manchester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho on the bench, the former Super Eagles assistant coach said the decision is entirely that of the coach. I felt that Mikel would have had a better control of the midfield and make those passes he is noted for but the coach has the final word.

On Iheanacho, I believe that he has age on his side and can learn more from others. He would cer­tainly have his time with Eagles,” he stated.
