Former Eagles Coach Oliseh to Study Nigeria Matches for FIFA
Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has been assigned to analyse two matches involving the Nigeria U23 side at the Rio 2016 Olympics by world football governing body, Fifa, Vanguard writes.
Oliseh, 42, who left the Eagles coaching job in February after a fallout with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), is a member of the Fifa technical study group for the Games in Rio de Janeiro. And he will give reports on the Dream Team VI clashes against Japan and Colombia.
The Samson Siasia-led team will play Japan in their opening game in Rio 2016 on Friday in Manaus, while their match against Colombia will be their last group game.
The Olympic Eagles, who were camped in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the past one month, will square up against Colombia on August 10 in Sao Paulo.
Oliseh, who was a member of the victorious 1996 Olympic football team in Atlanta, USA, has expressed delight at the privilege given him.
“It’s always a delight to serve FIFA as a Nigerian and I can’t wait for the Games to start in Manaus” he said.
The former Eagles skipper had a similar role at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil where he gave insight on a number of matches.
