Oliseh looks forward to first game as Super Eagles boss

31 August 2015, 14:44

Abuja - Ahead of his first task as the Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh is expressing optimism about his chances to start on a good note.

Oliseh has been working with the home based players for the last two weeks and is set to be joined by the overseas based lads this week, and says he is optimistic, but must see all the players to know how optimistic he should be.

"I'm optimistic," Oliseh stated confidently. "We have to get everybody on ground to know how optimistic we should be but we are also realistic to know we have to get the train on track first, so gradually we're starting," he said.

The 40-year old former Super Eagles captain has already listed six out of the 23 invited home based players that will travel to Dar-es-Salaam for the 2017 AFCON qualifier game, and will be joined by their overseas based counterparts.

Conspicuously missing from the six home based players listed is striker Gbolahan Salami, who couldn't return on time with his international passport, having been permitted to travel to Lagos to retrieve it from the Norwegian embassy.
