Big match feature: Tanzania vs Nigeria

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will continue their quest for a spot at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations when they meet the Taifa Stars of Tanzania at the National Stadium in Dar Es Salaam on Saturday.

The team will start life without Stephen Keshi after his four year reign ended under acrimonious circumstances after the 2-0 defeat of Chad in June.

Former RC Liege midfielder Sunday Oliseh(below) is the new man saddled with the responsibility of leading the 2013 Afcon champions back to the apex African football showpiece after missing out on the last edition in Equatorial Guinea in 2015 which the Ivory Coast won.

Oliseh has gone about his business inviting 18 foreign based players and mixing it up with six local based players as they hope to rake points on board against their hosts Tanzania.
