Return Super Eagles To Lagos, Says Oliseh

Former Nigeria international, Sunday
Oliseh has clamoured for the Super Eagles’ return to the National Stadium, Lagos for their international matches.
In the space of 12 months, the former African champions have played in several stadia in the country where they have recorded contrasting results.
According to the former Borrusia Dortmund star, the surest bet for the country to remain invincible at home is by bringing them back to their former fortress in Lagos.
“It’s a lot easier now to play for Nigeria and I guess that is one of the reasons we are not doing so well now. In those days, you go to the National Stadium, Lagos in
front 100, 000 fans,” Oliseh said during an interview with Brila Fm.
“After 20 minutes, you have not scored the fans go crazy and your family lives in Lagos; that is pressure. When you go to the Africa Cup of Nations or the World Cup
and you know that second is not enough; that is pressure. When you have to play and the future of your family is at stake that is pressure.
“I’m overtly telling them that if we want to go back to the top; we need to bring the Super Eagles back to Lagos “If England have an important match to
play, they play you at Wembley because that is where they have the greatest number of fans and that is where it becomes emotional for the players. The National
Stadium is our own Wembley.
“I played for Nigeria for 10 years and we never lost at the National Stadium. That shows you how mythical it was to play there. The players need that kind of atmosphere
to perform,” he concluded
