Oliseh was hired as the Super Eagles coach in 2015 by the former NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, but his reign as the gaffer of the three-time African champions did not last.

Omeruo scores wonder goal for Leganes in win over tough opponents

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Kenneth Omeruo on Sunday evening, 9 October, scored a fine goal for his side Leganes in an away 2-1 win over Cartagena to end their winless run this season.

Going into this battle against Cartagena, Omeruo and his teammates had failed to win any of their last four games, in which they lost three and drew 1.

Leganes' players were however determined to get something nice against Cartagena and they did themselves lots of good by recording a win even though they had to come back from a goal down.

There was no goal between these two sides in the first half, but Cartagena came out stronger in the second half and took the lead in the 55th minute through Borja Valle.
