Sunday Oliseh, a former Eagles player and Super Eagles coach, has compared Nigeria’ last outing at the 2016 Olympics with the performance of the Dream Eagles at Atlanta 1996 where Nigeria won a gold medal in football.
Asked if the class of 2016 at Rio can be compared to the 1996 team he participated in, Oliseh said:
“No, I don’t think so. Every country talks about its own golden generation, and Nigeria is no different. You can’t have several golden generations, or at least not in a short space of time.”
