Former Super Eagles’ coach Sunday Oliseh has been appointed as a member of the Federation of International Football Association’s (FIFA) technical study group (TSG).
This will make it the second time Oliseh would be appointed to TSG.
“Honoured to be appointed into the “new look” FIFA Technical Department. Next mission; The 2016 Rio Olympics Football,” Oliseh said on his verified Twitter account.
