Lagos - The Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation says the resignation of former coach Sunday Oliseh is no more a distraction to the body.
The Super Eagles play Egypt in a two-legged 2017 AFCON qualifier games this March, and committee chairman Chris Green says that’s where the attention of the NFF is focused now.
Samson Siasia, alongside Emmanuel Amuneke, Salisu Yusuf and Alloy Agu have since replaced Oliseh and some of his technical crew.

“Our focus right now is on the immediate two Afcon matches against Egypt as Sunday Oliseh is no more a distraction,” Green told SuperSport.
“At least, the people in office can continue to take care of any issues concerning coach Sunday Oliseh.
“The technical committee has put behind us the Oliseh’s case ours is to put thing right to ensure we claim the desired results in the two matches.
“I must tell you we are wiser right now and I believe we have learnt our lesson from Oliseh’s tenure.
