Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation will on Wednesday present Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh to the media and the general public as the new Head Coach of the Senior National Team – Super Eagles.

NFF President Amaju Pinnick, as well as other members of the NFF Executive Committee and Management will preside over the presentation that will take place at the Media Centre of the National Stadium, Abuja from 11am, in front of scores of media representatives.

On Tuesday evening, Oliseh and his assistants had a robust, 90 –minute meeting with the NFF Technical and Development Committee, headed by Felix Anyansi-Agwu, where he unfolded his plans for the Super Eagles.

After the meeting, a meeting of the NFF Executive Committee received the report of the Technical and Development Committee, and unanimously adopted the recommendation to hire Oliseh as the new Super Eagles’ Head Coach.

Nicknamed ‘Passmaster’ in his playing days, during which he won Olympic football gold, the Africa Cup of Nations gold, silver and bronze, and reached the Round of 16 at the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cup final competitions with the Super Eagles, Oliseh holds a UEFA Pro License and is a member of the FIFA Technical Study Group.

The 40 –year old will immediately begin the task of preparing the Super Eagles for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away to Tanzania in the first week of September, as well as an international friendly some days later.

“There is no time to waste. The team has important matches to prosecute in the next few weeks and it is imperative that Oliseh starts work immediately,” NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, said on Tuesday.
