Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has revealed that the reason behind the invitation of the 24 players for the October’s international friendly match against Congo and Cameroon was meant to build an understanding amongst the players.

With the likes of Vincent Enyeama, Mikel Obi and Victor Moses making a return to the team after missing the game against Tanzania, Oliseh said that he wants to build a squad and would give all the players equal opportunities to impress him.

“The aim of doing this (inviting 24 players) is to keep trying to get our team together and trying to build and get our team together. We wanted an opportunity for the new coaching crew to keep working in one direction for Nigerians,” Oliseh said.

“And because of that, I have assembled a team of 24 players to come in and we’ll try to give as much playing time to these 24 players as possible and the good thing is we’ll be together for seven days non-stop; working together and sharing ideas and trying to get the team’s cohesion together.

“We are trying to get a nucleus; a group of players that we can build the team around and I don’t just need one, I need several players and that’s what we’re going to do,” Oliseh said.
