SCORECARD: All The Super Eagles Matches Oliseh Oversaw

After just being in charge for just nine months, Sunday Oliseh shocked everyone by resigning as head coach of the Super Eagles on Thursday night.

Oliseh, who took over from Stephen Keshi in July 2015, cited poor working conditions as the reason for calling it quits.

TANZANIA 0-0 NIGERIA (2017 AFCON Qualifier)


Sunday Oliseh’s first game as the coach of the Super Eagles was a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania in Dar es Salaam.

With the likes of Carl Ikeme, Izunna Uzochukwu making their debuts, and a recall for Haruna Lukman, the Eagles played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw against Tanzania.

NIGERIA 2-0 NIGER (Friendly game)

Oliseh recorded his first win as Eagles coach following a 2-0 win against Niger Republic in an international friendly game in Port Harcourt.

Ahmed Musa gave the Eagles a first half lead from the penalty spot.

Then in the second half, Moses Simon sealed the win for the Eagles.

NIGERIA 0-2 DR CONGO (Friendly game)

The Eagles played two friendly games in Belgium ahead of their crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Swaziland.

First, they took on the Democratic Republic of Congo, who had the duo of Yannick Bolasie and Deumerci Mbokani.

At the end of the encounter, DR Congo defeated Nigeria 2-0 with Mbokani getting the first goal.

NIGERIA 3-0 CAMEROON (Friendly game)

Three days later, the Eagles took on Cameroon and emerged 3-0 victors.

Efe Ambrose gave the Eagles a first half lead before second half goals from Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo secured the win.

NIGERIA 2-0 BURKINA FASO (1st leg, 2016 CHAN Qualifier)

After the conclusion of the friendly games against DR Congo and Cameroon, six days later the home-based Eagles faced Burkina Faso in the first leg final round qualifiers for the 2016 Africa Nations Championship in Rwanda.

The home-based Eagles triumphed 2-0 in Port Harcourt.

Yaro Bature had given the Eagles a first half lead, before Gbolahan Salami converted from the penalty spot.

BURKINA FASO 0-0 NIGERIA (2nd leg, 2016 CHAN Qualifier)

In the return leg of the 2016 Africa Nations Championship qualifier, the home-based Eagles forced Burkina Faso to a 0-0 draw and handex Oliseh qualification to his first major competition as a coach.

SWAZILAND 0-0 NIGERIA (1st leg, 2018 World Cup Qualifier)

The first leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier saw the Eagles go away to take on Swaziland.

A star-studded Eagles side could only settle for a 0-0 draw against the southern African minnows.

NIGERIA 2-0 SWAZILAND (2nd leg, 2018 World Cup Qualifier)

The Eagles welcomed Swaziland in Port Harcourt for the reverse fixture of the 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Surprisingly, the Eagles ended the first half goalless.

But in the second half, Moses Simon broke the deadlock from a free-kick before Efe Ambrose added the second goal for the Eagles.

NIGERIA 1-1 ANGOLA(Friendly game)

The Home Eagles first pre-CHAN friendly was against Angola.
After taking the lead and looking like securing the win, the Angolans scored a late goal to end the game one apiece.

NIGERIA 1-0 COTE D’IVOIRE (Friendly game)

Prior to departing South Africa for Rwanda, the Eagles played their last warm-up game against Cote d’Ivoire and won 1-0.

NIGERIA 4-1 NIGER (Group stage, CHAN 2016)

The home-based Eagles took on Niger Republic in their first game of the group stage at the Africa Nations Championship.

A hat-trick from Chisom Chikatara and a goal from Osas Okoro gave Sunday Oliseh’s side a 4-1 win.

NIGERIA 1-1 TUNISIA (Group stage, CHAN 2016)

Up next for the Eagles was Tunisia. And after a very tight contest, Chikatara put the Eagles in front and also netted his fourth goal of the competition.

But Ahmed Akaichi, who was the tormentor-in-chief for Tunisia, equalised to make sure both teams shared the points.

GUINEA 1-0 NIGERIA (Group stage, CHAN 2016)

Needing at least a draw to book a place into the quarter-finals, the Eagles lost 1-0 to Guinea.

The loss proved costly, as Oliseh and his home-based Super Eagles side crashed out of the 2016 Africa Nations Championship.

6 wins, 5 draws, 2 defeats
