There will be no sentiments in team selection - Oliseh

21 August 2015, 11:02

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has said there won’t be sentiments when he selects his teams for games.

The 40-year old says he will select only the most productive players irrespective of where they play.

“We have the Nations Cup to prepare for, we have the CHAN to prepare for and we have the World Cup to prepare for,” he said.

“There will be lots of games for everybody so we’re just going to move on along and try everybody out and try every player in each position and see how they can carry it out.”

Speaking further, Oliseh added that if a home based player has shown more productivity against an overseas based counterpart, he will play the home based player.

“If a player that is playing back home in the league here is giving more productivity than the one from abroad, he (home based player) will play because you want to win and I want to win, so there will be no sentiments,” Oliseh stressed.

18 overseas based players have been invited for the game against Tanzania, and are expected to hit camp on or before the 31st of August, and will join the 21 home based players that have been training in Abuja.
