He added that a number of the Nigerian internationals had called him on telephone to ask for “what they’re being owed.
“I only have one fear: “It is that I just hope that the next time we send invitations out, that players won’t start refusing to play for Nigeria. That is something that is scary but it is real. We have to start thinking because we’re not going to work miracles anymore,” said Oliseh.
“I’m just afraid that if we don’t put our acts in order we might invite players for the next
qualifications and may be some players (might not come); I’m afraid. Already I’m getting phone calls from them, you they’re still asking what they’re being owed.”
