According to Oliseh, many of the players performed well and such players would continue with the main national team for the qualifiers for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. While others will bid the national team goodbye.
“They have proved their class here and will surely get their chance,”
He further added that “It’s a big disappointment, but I’m proud of my boys even though we did not go through. They gave a good image of themselves. Somewhere inside, it was difficult for the players. They have given their best, they needed that lift and they couldn’t find it then. We came out to win, but we did not play. My players are human and there is limit to what they can hold.”
Oliseh affirmed that lack of adequate preparations was one of the reasons responsible for their early exit.
“I’m not making excuses, but this is an adult tournament and there are some things that must be put in store for players to deliver. One of the lessons learnt is that when next we are going for a tournament, I think we can prepare a little better.”
