Nigeria Football Federation has unveiled Sunday Oliseh as the new coach of the Super Eagles.

Oliseh has been appointed to fill the vacant coaching job, after the federation sacked Stephen Keshi a week ago. Keshi was fired after he allegedly breached his contract by applying for the Ivory Coast coaching job.

Oliseh is a former Super Eagles captain, having played for Nigeria from 1993-2002 and winning the African Cup of Nations in 1994 and Olympic gold in 1996.
