According to a tweet by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), via its Twitter handle, @thenff, the former Nigeria captain, became dizzy and weak after lunch today, and so had to be flown abroad tonight through the Port Harcourt Airport.

The NFF said: “Coach Sunday Oliseh has returned to Belgium to continue treatment after being advised by Eagles medics.

“He became dizzy and weak after lunch on Thursday and he travels abroad tonight through the Port Harcourt Airport.”

Recall that Oliseh joined his assistants after undergoing treatment in Belgium and was on the bench when the Eagles whipped the Etalons of Burkina Faso 2-0 in Port Harcourt last week, in their first leg African Nations Championship qualifying clash.

Very reliable sources informed Sports Vanguard that the Coach ”was not himself and after being examined by the Eagles’ Doctor, he was advised to return to Belgium to complete his treatment. ‘Yes, he’ll not travel with the team to Ouagadogou. He’s off to Belgium on medical grounds,” the source said.
