Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has warned played against unnecessary errors as the team prepares to play the Leopards of DR Congo and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in international friendlie on October 8 and October 11 in Belgium.

Both matches will serve as preparation for the team ahead of November 9 World Cup qualifiers against the winner of Swaziland and Djibouti game.

Oliseh said that the team must go beyond just showing 100% commitment but must avoid making silly mistakes during the friendly matches in a bid to achieve its set goal.

“I am quite impressed with the commitment of the players as we work towards building a formidable team. However, I will want a situation where we take most of our chances in any match regardless of its importance because that will help to build our confidence.

“Besides, keeping it clean and avoiding errors that could dent our hopes of qualifying for any major tournament irrespective of the team we are playing should be the team’s priority at this point,” he said during a radio programme.

On Tuesday, Oliseh released a list of 19 home –based professionals who will start a camp in Port Harcourt next week Monday, ahead of a 4th African Nations Championship final qualifying fixture against Burkina Faso next month.
