Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has been looking at several new players like Granada striker Isaac Success and Chuba Akpom, who is on loan to Hull City from Arsenal.
According to NFF technical committee chairman Chris Green, Oliseh has been working hard in Europe shopping for the players who will do Nigeria proud in next month’s AFCON double-header against Egypt.
“Oliseh is looking at players like Isaac Success and Chuba Akpom for the match against Egypt,” disclosed Green.
Young striker Success, for one, has established himself at La Liga side Granada this season after he was a late withdrawal from the country's squad to last year's U23 AFCON in Senegal.
Green further disclosed that Oliseh will appear before his technical committee to defend his choice of players for the showdown against Egypt.
“Oliseh will appear before us in Abuja. We must assist him to beat Egypt,” said the top official, who revealed that his committee members have rescinded a decision to quit following the recent tirades of the Eagles coach.
