Former Super Eagles coach Clemens Westerhof has slammed coach Sunday Oliseh for saying he was proud of the team’s defeat of Swaziland in a 2018 FIFA world cup qualifier.
Nigeria defeated Swaziland 2 – 0 in the second leg of the world cup qualifier after a goalless first leg.
Westerhof is however not pleased with the manner of the victory. According to the former coach, Nigeria should be inflicting a cricket scoreline on Swaziland.
He said: “Congratulations, you beat Swaziland 2-0 in the return leg match of the preliminary round of the qualifiers.
“But does that really call for celebration? Yes, there are no minnows in football but who are Swaziland to hold the Super Eagles to a goalless draw?
He continued: “The Super Eagles won 2-0 in Nigeria but is it not a game the Super Eagles should be winning 6-0, 7-0 under normal circumstances? What type of football do they play in Swaziland?
“Swaziland is not the first match Super Eagles have played under Oliseh. There has not been any difference between their first game under him and the game with Swaziland.
“I’m sorry, with Oliseh, the Super Eagles may not go to the World Cup in Russia.”
Westerhof won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations title with the Super Eagles in Tunisia.
