The Nigeria Football Federation officials have announced that Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has returned to Belgium after falling very ill in the team’s camp in Port Harcourt.
The NFF officials said via their Twitter handle, “Coach Oliseh has returned to Belgium to continue treatment after being advised by Eagles medics. He became dizzy and weak after lunch on Thursday and he travels abroad tonight through the Port Harcourt Airport.”
The PUNCH learnt that following the doctors’ recommendation, the NFF leadership decided to fly him out immediately to Belgium to meet with his personal doctor.
The development means that Oliseh will not be on the bench when Eagles take on Burkina Faso on Sunday in the second match of the qualifier for the 2016 Championship for African Nations. The former Nigeria captain had been reported as ill soon after Nigeria defeated Cameroon 3-0 in a friendly match played in Brussels.
He was initially not expected for the match against the Burkinabes in Port Harcourt but he arrived in the camp barely 24 hours to the match.
In his absence, Salisu Yusuf will take charge of the team in Ouagadougou on Sunday. The Eagles B are travelling to the Burkina capital with a 2-0 advantage from the first leg.
