Oliseh was in London alongside NFF Boss, Amaju Pinnick, and his assistant coach, Francois Losciuto, to watch the duo of Victor Moses, who managed to play for nine minutes and Mikel Obi, who was an unused Substitute as Chelsea lost 1-0 to Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday.

Daily Independent learnt that Oliseh’s expected arrival in Nigeria is meant to start preparations for the Nations Cup qualifiers.

Oliseh said last week that the list of Home Based Super Eagles players would be released this week, in a bid to start preparation ahead of the team’s encounter against Burkina Faso for the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers.

Nigeria will travel to Tanzania in September for a crucial 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, followed by the second round of the African qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup scheduled for November.
