Former Stuttgart striker Jonathan Akpoborie has stated that Nigeria should focus more on how the Super Eagles will qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, instead of dwelling too much on coach Sunday Oliseh's recent video rant.
After his YouTube outburst at the weekend, Oliseh apologised first to the Nigeria Football Federation and then to Nigerians, stating that poor treatment of the team to the just concluded Africa Nations Championship and other issues led to his reaction.
"I think we should all respect the fact that Oliseh has apologised to the NFF. The goal now is to qualify for AFCON with everybody's support," Akpoborie, a former Super Eagles star who many believe Oliseh also aimed a dig at, wrote on his Twitter handle.
The Eagles are currently on four points and are behind group leaders Egypt, who have six points.
Both teams will square off twice next month in Kaduna and Cairo, in their third and fourth group games of the qualifiers.
