The former Super Eagles defensive midfielder, who guided the CHAN Eagles to overcome Niger, 4-1 in their opening Group C game at the Nyamirambo Stadium early in the week in Kigali, Rwanda, warned that the notion that Nigeria should win all titles was wrong.

“My team is a very young team and we want to take every game as it comes. If God grants us this trophy, then we shall be grateful…I can’t start talking about the title after just game one. I don’t want to be obsessed with this notion that because we are Nigerians, we should win everything. Other teams did not come to be fans,” he added.

Speaking further, Oliseh hinted that he did not know the players that would be starting the next group game against Tunisia on Friday.

Nigeria’s Chisom Chikatara, with three goals, is currently leading the top scorers’ log and is closely followed by Tunisia’s Ahmed Akaïchi, and Guinea’s Alsény Camara, with two goals each.
