Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has disclosed that the team’s preparation for the crucial African Cup of Nations qualification tie against Egypt on March 25 in Kaduna is under big threat due to the teams ‘not too impressive’ financial status.
Oliseh Oliseh, revealed on a popular radio sports programme that his team list is being delayed because it is hard for him to move around Europe to meet the players he intends to invite for the tie.
He said: “I am struggling financially, waiting for approvals to move around Europe, so it has been quiet. It has to do with transport, accommodation and other expenses while moving out. “I need to spend 15, 20 minutes on the phone to speak to each player before he is invited,” said the under-fire coach.
He disclosed that he intends to open camp in mid March with players from the local league ahead of the must win encounter with the Pharaohs of Egypt. Oliseh said seven or eight players from the African Championship team will be in the Super Eagles that will face the Egyptians who are playing Burkina Faso in a friendly to boost their preparations.
