In a move that the NFF (Nigeria Football Federation) would despise, Sunday Oliseh, the former Super Eagles boss, will be a pundit for Nigeria’s football team group games at the Rio 2016 Olympics starting this August.

The 41-year old is one of the football experts that have been selected by FIFA to analyse games in the competition.

And the former Borussia Dortmund and Juventus midfielder didn’t waste time to express his delight on the job, confirming via his twitter account.

“Blessed to be honouring Nigeria as one of 6 chosen FIFA experts Worldwide to work on the Olympics. Lovely feeling,” He wrote on Twitter.

The games Oliseh will analyse are Dream Team VI’s opener against Japan and the subsequent fixture against Colombia.

Sunday Oliseh played for Nigeria at the 1996 Olympics in USA, where they eventually won gold.
