The Nigeria Football Association have confirmed the appointment of Sunday Oliseh as Super Eagles coach.
Completesportsnigeria.com reports that the former Nigeria midfielder signed a three-year contract in Abuja on Wednesday and was formally presented to the media afterwards.
Oliseh takes over from his former international teammate Stephen Keshi, who was sacked last week after falling out with the NFF.
The former Juventus midfielder’s first match in charge is expected to be the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania in September. His immediate mandate is to get Nigeria back into AFCON after the 2013 champions failed to qualify for the 2015 edition.
