Chukwu Commend Oliseh List For AFCON
Christian Chukwu has commended the choice of Sunday Oliseh for the African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Tanzania in Dar es Salam.
The number one on the Nigerian coach list are Haruna Lukman, Joel Obi and Emmanuel Emenike as well as other regulars from the Stephen Keshi era.
“I sincerely believe that Oliseh might have studied Tanzania’s video clips which informed the list of players he sent to the Nigeria Football Federation’s Technical Department before it was finally made public [on Monday evening]. Let’s see what he makes out of the players he invited,” Chukwu told Goal.
As regards the absence of some star players, the former Eagles handler said that there is no way a coach can satisfy all fans and that the most important thing is victory on the road.
“Let me tell you, there is no list any coach can release that people won’t complain. Even if Goal releases a team list, in as much as it’s for the Super Eagles, people will certainly complain.
“But the most important thing is for Oliseh to go ahead with the players he has invited and go to Tanzania and beat them on their soil in Dar es Salam.
“He has just come out with the list so let’s give him a chance and see what stuff he is made of technically.
“Maybe these players he invited will be more committed to the work at hand. So let’s see what he does with them first,” Chukwu said.
