Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh is fully recovered from a virus infection that kept him away from Nigeria and has already got cracking in his preparations for the 2016 CHAN, which kicks off on January 16, officials have said.
On Saturday night, Oliseh, who was not part of the team’s training camp in Abuja, received the Eagles squad in Pretoria and the following day they were training under his supervision.
“Oliseh is fully recovered now. We met him at the hotel on our arrival and he started training the team today (Sunday),” disclosed Oliseh’s special assistant Tijani Babangida.
On Wednesday, the Eagles will play a warm-up game against another CHAN-bound team Angola.
They are also slated to face Cote d’Ivoire on January 11 before they depart for Rwanda.
