Oliseh appointed as new Nigeria coach

Nasarawa United make history as Nigerian football continues to progress

Nasarawa United's 2-1 win over Kano Pillars last Sunday was so seismic it reverberated around the world.

Not many news items about Nigerian football, certainly not ones concerning the domestic football league, make such a splash, so this was one of massive significance.

Here's why: Kano Pillars were playing at home. Kano Pillars had not lost at home since 2003. That's 12 years or, if you please, 202 games. I dare anyone to show me a club anywhere else in the world with such a record!

Sunday Oliseh's first Nigeria squad has suspect midfield but fearsome attack

New Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has named his first squad following his arrival and Stephen Keshi's depature.

Sunday Oliseh's first Nigeria squad selection instantly reflects the philosophy he has espoused from the day he signed on to coach the Super Eagles.

His first group of call-ups from Europe combines continuity from the past squad with youth, balance and more importantly high level football.

Oliseh has kept the core of the team that Stephen Keshi previously worked with. His primary criterion for selection has been playing time and his current squad more than meets the mark on that score.

Carl Ikeme called up for Nigeria squad, Mikel and Moses miss out

Nigerian coach Sunday Oliseh, right, has called up Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme as part of his squad for the team's next Africa Nations Cup qualifier.

Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has called up goalkeeper Carl Ikeme from Wolverhampton in preparation for their upcoming Africa Nations Cup qualifier vs. Tanzania next month.

Much of the squad is unchanged from the one his predecessor Stephen Keshi used his last time around. However, Oliseh did recall UAE-based forward Emmanuel Emenike, Werder Bremen striker Anthony Ujah and midfielders Lukman Haruna and Obiora Nwankwo.

Notable omissions include Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel and winger Victor...

Remembering a Nigeria legend -- Samuel Okwaraji

For many Nigeria fans, the players of today lack the spirit and patriotism of Samuel Okwaraji.
For many Nigeria fans, the players of today lack the spirit and patriotism of Samuel Okwaraji.

He only played eight times for Nigeria and scored a grand total of one goal, but Samuel Okwaraji did enough during that brief amount of time to write himself into Nigerian football folklore.

The fact that he collapsed on the pitch and then died a few minutes later may have played its part in his legacy, but it was more about the man and his selfless patriotism, the determination to give everything for his country.

Armed with a Masters degree in law, and studying for his doctorate, Okwaraji...

Nigeria's Sunday Oliseh using a more modern approach than predecessors

Nigeria manager Sunday Oliseh, right, is embracing social media to get his message across to the team's fans.

During my time as the Nigeria national team press officer working under two managers in Samson Siasia and Stephen Keshi, my hardest task by far was trying to convince both men to embrace social media.

Neither man appeared interested. For varying reasons, the biggest of which was that they claimed they didn't have time to be "mucking about with that social media nonsense" when they had more important things to do.

Last week, new coach Sunday Oliseh stunned Nigerians by posting a video update...
