Sunday Oliseh starts Nigeria reign with Goalless Draw with Tanzania.
Tanzania holds Nigeria to goalless draw in AFCON Qualifier.
Sunday Oliseh started his regime with a goalless draw with Tanzania.If Oliseh intends to last in this job,he has to learn to be pragmatic and realistic.You cannot start by alienating big name players all in the name of them not being regulars for their club sides.We haven't got that luxury to mess with.Victor Moses for example would have changed this game if he had been there to help out Ahmed Musa who was exceptional.Also its a miracle how the Watford striker ,Odion Ighalo was not
invited,the boy is on fire yet didn't get an invite.
The Super Eagles, who reached the last-16 at last year's World Cup, were dominated by their hosts through much of the match as a new-look line-up, much changed from the side under previous coach Stephen Keshi, made little impact.
Nigeria are in a tough qualifying group including Egypt, who play at Chad on Sunday.
"We struggled in the first half. The second half we were a little better. But we lacked quality in certain areas," said Oliseh.
Egypt and Nigeria both won their opening qualifiers in June and meet each other in two successive matches next March.
Elsewhere, South Sudan recorded their maiden competitive win with a 1-0 defeat of 2015 hosts Equatorial Guinea.
Meanwhile, Ghana's Mubarak Wakaso scored two minutes from fulltime to seal a 1-0 win away to Rwanda.
Ghana have won their first two matches in the preliminaries for the 2017 finals and head the Group H standings with six points.
