A former Super Eagles Captain, Sunday Oliseh, has said Nigeria may, for the umpteenth time, miss out on qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Eagles were unable to qualify for the 2015 AFCON held in Equatorial Guinea and according to Oliseh, if the disturbing events that has trailed the first qualifying match in the 2017 qualification series are not addressed on time, Nigeria may again be a spectator at the showpiece event fixed to hold in Gabon early 2017.
“Let Nigeria leave side issues and player character attacks aside and face pure football issues. Otherwise we might not be at the next Nations cup again as participants but mere spectators!” Oliseh wrote on his personal blog sundayoliseh.tv.
The former Juventus and Ajax of Amsterdam midfielder faulted how the Nigeria Football Federation has been all over the place in their quest to nail Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama for his supposed “uncomplimentary remarks” about the choice of Kaduna for the AFCON qualifying match against Chad.
The Super who defeated Chad 2-0 in their first outing at the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Kaduna will take on Tanzania in September in the second game in the series.
