Oliseh surrenders to pressure, finally includes Kelechi Iheanacho

30 October 2015, 10:12

Abuja - Super Eagles head coach Sunday Oliseh has made a dramatic U-turn by including Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho in his list of invited players for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Swaziland.

Oliseh had initially invited 23 players for the game, with the Manchester City youngster conspicuously missing, despite his continued impressive form for the former English champions.

Moments after the list was announced by the Nigeria Football Federation, Oliseh came under attack on social media, with several Nigerians criticizing the decision to leave out the 19-year old who has been constant with the City first team, in favour of the Arsenal youth-teamer, Alex Iwobi.

Oliseh however made the U-turn hours later, with the NFF announcing that Iheanacho had been included to the list.

An initial list of 23 was released earlier on Thursday by the Nigeria Football Federation but Iheanacho's inclusion now increases the number of invited players to 24.

"I initially called up 23 players but I am adding Kelechi Iheanacho to the list immediately," Oliseh told thenff.com after coming under fire for his initial decision to omit the youngster.

"I have been following Kelechi's progress at City," he said further.

Kelechi Iheanacho was named man of the match Manchester City's Capital One Cup win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday, where he scored a goal and provided two assists to aid his side's progress in the competition.
