Written by Taiwo Adediran on October 19, 2015
Indications emerged on Sunday that Sunday Oliseh may drop Emmanuel Emenike from next month’s World Cup qualifier against Swaziland after the striker failed to deliver in four matches under the new Eagles coach.
Oliseh is a big admirer of Emenike after he top scored at the 2013 AFCON in South Africa, but he has now gone more than two years without a goal for the three-time African champions.His last goal was in Ethiopia in October 2013 in a final 2014 World Cup play-off.A top source close to the team said Oliseh is disappointed in Emenike as he has not justified the confidence reposed in him.
Nigeria and Swaziland will battle for a place in the third round of the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign. The two legs are slated for between November 9 and 17 with the overall winners to a third round to be played on a mini-league basis.
