Obafemi Martins must fight for Super Eagles shirt – Oliseh

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh, has stated that Obafemi Martins must earn his place in the starting line-up of the team.
The Seattle Sounders striker was recalled to the national team after almost two years in the ‘wilderness’.

But after scoring 15 goals this season for the Major League Soccer outfit and the retirement of Emmanuel Emenike, Oliseh extended an invitation to the former Inter Milan and Newcastle man.

“Martins will offer us some other qualities in attack but first he must earn his place in the team,” Oliseh briefly told Completesportsnigeria.com

Oliseh also spoke about the home-based Eagles and expressed his delight with their qualification for next year’s African Nations Championship in Rwanda.

He said: “I was so impressed with the team’s play in the first leg and though I was not with the team in the second leg, I was told they did brilliantly considering the hostility.”
