Oliseh bemoans central defence

Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh wants a quick response from his charges ahead of Sunday’s international friendly against Cameroon.

The Super Eagles were beaten 2-0 by Congo DR in their last friendly international on Thursday with Dieumerci Mbokani and Jordan Mkololo netting for the Leopards at Stade de la Cité de l’Oie, Visé.

Oliseh is now looking for a rapid response that will see his side bounce back against the four-time African champions.

“The most important thing (was) allowing the boys rest (after the game with DR Congo) and freshen up the minds.

“We have to take the positives from that defeat against Congo DR.

“We desperately need cover for the central defence position as the duo of Godfrey Oboabona and Kenneth Omeruo were badly missed in the defeat to Congo DR.

“We are building and we are getting more and more players buy into our philosophy and the cohesion is getting better,” he said.

Oliseh has so far managed three games as Nigeria coaches and has masterminded one win, one draw and one defeat.
