24 July 2015, 11:13

Lagos - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has revealed that his first ever team list as Nigeria coach will be announced in the first week of August, and that will be a list of home based players for the CHAN qualifiers in October.

The 40-year old has also said the highly anticipated list of invited players for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania will be announced in the middle of August.

“Our list of invited players for the CHAN team will be out in the first week of August, while that of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania should be out by mid-August,” Oliseh was quoted on the NFF website.

The former Nigeria captain has also admitted that he has to hit the ground running, with the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup starting early next year.

“We have to cover all grounds and be adequately prepared for all the competitions we are involved in whether it is CHAN, AFCON or World Cup qualifiers.

Oliseh, who was appointed just two weeks ago as Stephen Keshi’s replacement, also said he and first assistant Jean Francois Losciuto are presently in Europe scouting for players while second assistant, Salisu Yusuf and goalkeepers trainer, Alloy Agu are scouting the home front for players.

“Jean Francois (first assistant) and I have been busy combing and tracking players in Europe while Salisu Yusuf has been doing same with our home based stars.

“Alloy Agu, who is still involved with the U23 Team will join him once they conclude their qualifiers against Congo,” Oliseh stressed further.
