Oliseh’s inexperience cost Eagles against Tanzania, says Babayaro

08 September 2015, 16:02

Lagos - Former Nigeria National team goalkeeper Emmanuel Babayaro has given his opinion as to why the Super Eagles failed to pick up all points in their last AFCON 2017 game against Tanzania, by saying the 0-0 draw was possibly because of the inexperience of the new Super Eagles handler, Sunday Oliseh.

"It's clear to see from his players selection that he is inexperienced and I hope he gets better but his lack of coaching experience cost Nigeria all three points against Tanzania."

"If Oliseh had gotten a little bit of experience, he would have not gambled with debutants in a competitive game on his debut as head coach of Nigeria, the midfield especially was parked filled with green horns who together have not got up to 10 caps but, we hope they get better with time."

He rounded up by advising Oliseh to be fearless in his team selection and to be firm in the case of excluding or substituting any player who is not playing according to his instructions and to the benefit of the team.
