Oliseh: Eagles will get back to the top in good time

Oliseh: Eagles will get back to the top in good time

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, is confident that the senior national team will soon be a force to be reckoned with in world football.

Nigeria could only draw 0-0 with Tanzania’s Taifa Stars on Saturday as the race to Gabon 2017 Africa Cup of Nations reached a third of the way.

But the former captain of the team says he has confidence in his players to steer Nigeria to the finals.

“I have said it over and over that I am no magician. We have to come to accept the hard fact that we are not right there at the top there, at the moment,” he said.


“No doubt, we have potential and based on the unity I have seen amongst the players, and the willingness to work hard and accomplish, we will get back to the top in good time.

“We are building a new team, and patience is required. It is like starting from the scratch because the fact is that we didn’t qualify for the last Africa Cup of Nations.

“However, I have the confidence that this group will make Nigeria proud again.”


The Super Eagles will play a friendly match with the Mena of Niger Republic at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

The game starts at 3pm.
