Oliseh coordinates Super Eagles training via Skype

14 December 2015, 16:26

Lagos - Nigeria have begun their preparations for next year's African Nations Championships without head coach Sunday Oliseh, who continues to be laid low by illness.

The tactician is currently resting in Belgium but is still overseeing training via telephone and Skype, with assistants Salisu Yusuf and Jean Francois Loscuito passing on his instructions to the team.

"He (Oliseh) will be in touch with the camp via Skype and telephone, like he did when they played the second leg of the qualifiers in Burkina Faso without him on the bench," a Super Eagles official said.

Oliseh is, however, expected to be back with the team later this month when they head for a training camp in South Africa, before their first pre-CHAN friendly match on January 9, against Cote d'Ivoire.

Nigeria find themselves in CHAN 2016 Group C, alongside Tunisia, Niger and Guinea, with their opening group encounter coming against the latter on January 26.
