Oliseh admits his team was disorganised

06 September 2015, 17:56

Abuja - Following a drab 0-0 draw against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in his first game in charge, Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has expressed his opinion of his first performance.

Speaking after the game in Dar-es-Salaam, the 40-year old spoke of his team's shape, admitting they were disorganised, but insisted he must continue to build.

"We were disorganized in the first half but fared better in the 2nd," Oliseh posited.

"In the second half we organized ourselves better but lacked that quality supply from midfield to attack. But we will get better.

"We have to continue to build. We barely had two good days of training before this match so I am happy with the one point," Oliseh added.

Speaking further, Oliseh went on to praise man-of-the-match, Carl Ikeme, who was only making his debut, his performance ensuring Nigeria got a point from the match.

"I don't like to single out players from the team but I have to admit that Carl Ikeme had a great game for us today," he said.

Meanwhile,  Sunshine Stars midfielder Paul Onobi and Nasarawa United's Bature Yaro are to report to Port Harcourt on Monday ahead of the Niger Republic friendly.
