The head coach of Nigeria national team, Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh has disclosed he is struggling financially in preparations for the crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualification tie against Egypt on March 25 in Kaduna.
Oliseh, disclosed on a Brila FM sports programe that his team list is being delayed because it is hard for him to move around Europe to meet the players he intends to invite for the tie.
He said: “I am struggling financially, waiting for approvals to move around Europe, so it has been quiet. It has to do with transport, accommodation and other expenses while moving out.
“I need to spend 15, 20 minutes on the phone to speak to each player before he is invited,” he said.
He disclosed that he intends to open camp in mid March with players from the local league ahead of the must win encounter with the Pharaohs of Egypt.
Oliseh said seven or eight players from the African Championship team will be in the Super Eagles that will face the Egyptians who are playing Burkina Faso in a friendly to boost their preparations.
