Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has said that the Super Eagles are ready to do the nation proud as they prepare for their first game at the African Nations Championship against Niger on Monday.

According to Oliseh, the players are in top shape for the opening game against the Mena, assuring that the boys are ready to take the championship by storm.

“The camp mood is very good, right from the beginning the boys have been focused and cohesion among them is great,” Oliseh told Goal.

“We are building a team, our objective is not just about winning the championship, but for the team to get better and also build a solid team.

“If you notice the team, the players are very young and we plan to integrate some of them to the main team for the AFCON and World Cup qualifiers.”

Speaking further, the coach said the team is better than when they arrived in Pretoria for the pre-tournament camping and will continue to get better as the competition progresses.

He also added that the technical crew is not missing any player as they cannot bring all the league players to Rwanda.

“The players I love to have in my squad are here in Rwanda, we picked the players that qualified us for the Championship.

“We have quality options in the team, I don’t think we are missing anyone in the team,” he said.
