Green: Oliseh Needs Support, Eagles Must Win In Port Harcourt

By Bamidele‎ Boluwaji:

Nigeria Football Federation’s board member, Chris Green believes that the Super Eagles Coach Sunday Oliseh is yet to have dream team, saying the former senior national team captain is still building following the 0-0 away draw played with Swaziland in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier decided on Friday in Mbanbane.

Green who spoke to from the United States of America, said the result would help Oliseh to know the areas that need more attention in the team while urging the players to go to Port Harcourt and win the return leg.

“Even though I didn’t see the game, I guess it was drab. We are building. A lot of damage was done to this team before Oliseh took over. We must pray for a brilliant result in Port Harcourt so that if for nothing, it will bolster the confidence of the team ” the Rivers State FA boss said.

Green, while expressing his reservation about certain players invited to the team said Oliseh needs support from all angle to excel in the assignment given to him.

“I have my reservation on the invitation of certain players, but it’s the coach’s call and we must support him if we must succeed. I like Oliseh, I’ve seen his program and it’s very good for our team.‎”

The legal practitioner however urged Nigerians to be patient despite the result, noting that the former Juventus player has quality programme for Nigerian football.

“We actually must be patient with Oliseh, to try out certain players to see if they will come good and get some understanding. Let’s encourage good working relationship between Oliseh and Amodu, they can take us back to the zenith.

“Believe me, Oliseh is very knowledgeable,” Green concluded.

‎Meanwhile, the return leg match will hold on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.

    It wasn’t an easy game and secondly Nigeria showed no game plan especially when the Swazis sealed their goal post, that was when we could have piled more pressure on they the Swazis. Their Coach was after a draw and he got it, what we should be avoiding is conceding a goal at home, only one goal can undo us, I don’t see the importance of Musa Captainship and Ambrose gambles at the back too much, Rabiu Ibrahim could have been left on for a while and Martins should play as the striker hs is known to be and not forcing him to a midfield role he is not used to, infact Mikel is really useless and I now understand his bench role at Chelsea, he is such a liability.
