In another story, Super Eagles legend Sunday Oliseh has kicked against the exclusion of homebased outfield players in the Super Eagles provisional list. The three NPFL players in Jose Peseiro’s 40-man list were all goalkeepers(Ojo Olorunleke, Enyimba, Christian Nwoke, Sporting Lagos, Amas Obasogie, Bendel Insurance).

Oliseh, in a post on his X account on Thursday, said the absence of home-based players can only be excused if the current Super Eagles had players like in the 90s and early 2000s.

Further, the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder,  described the exclusion of NPFL players in the Eagles’ AFCON list as a serious attempt to “kill everything” that is “home-based in favour of football business”.
