Oliseh returns to Belgium for medical emergency

23 October 2015, 12:05

Lagos - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has left the Nigerian team camp and returned to Belgium after he fell ill, the Nigeria Football Federation says.

The 40-year old and his Super Eagles team had been preparing for the CHAN return leg qualifier against Burkina Faso, when he was said to have "become dizzy and weak after lunch on Thursday," and travelled back to his base in Belgium for further medical examination.

There were doubts whether he would be on the bench for Nigeria last weekend when they played the first leg of the CHAN qualifier in Port Harcourt, which they won 2-0, but he eventually made the bench.

But it is now confirmed he will not be a part of the delegation that travels to Ouagadougou, the Burkina Faso capital for the return leg.

The team will now be led by Salisu Yusuf, who has been directly in charge of the home based squad.

Nigeria will make their second appearance at the CHAN competition if they scale the Burkina Faso hurdle. They came third in their maiden appearance of the competition last year in South Africa, having failed to qualify for the first two editions.
