The dramatis personae in what has become known as the show of shame
of Belgium have been speaking on their actions even as they put aside
their differences to confront Congo in a friendly match today in Belgium.
Gaffer Sunday Oliseh who described the altercation as a normal
disagreement in a family, however, has explained his actions of str!pp!ng
first choice goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama of the Eagles captain’s band
and handing it over to CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa.
Speaking on Brila radio, Oliseh said that the storm was over but insisted
that Musa, the man who takes over as captain of Eagles have all the
qualities of a good captain.

‘’I want a captain who is disciplined. A leader who can motivate other
players. A player who comes to camp early. I want a young player not a
retiring player as captain. And Ahmed Musa is that player. He is my
captain’’, Oliseh said.
When you have a new government like our honourable president just
came in, he’s picked his ministers. And you have your philosophy and
you have your way of working.
“As a coach I have looked at the team and I have looked at Nigeria going
forward. We need a captain who will think of staying with Nigeria for
several years to come, who is regularly in the front. And Ahmed Musa
did a great job for us in Tanzania under very difficult circumstance. He
is a very responsible player and he is the captain of the team. So he is the
captain of the team, there is no question of a tussle.
“The fact that I would like to have somebody (as captain) who is thinking
of playing now and not somebody who is preparing for retirement or
thinking of life after-football. And I think it’s time we had peace and
quiet around the Super Eagles.
That is why I am glad that most of the players here are finding ways to
work as a team because I get the feeling now that they are aware that
they are representing 170 million people’’, Oliseh said on Brila. He
explained that the camp was in good mood ahead of today’s match.
‘’The players have shown their desire and we are working on stringing
them together. It is unfortunate that the home-based players are yet to be
given visas but we are hopeful that they will be here for the second
match against Cameroon on Sunday’’
